Directions to Solar Collector and Gold Coast

RRGCC
This wall is in property owned by RRGCC. Be respectful.
From the Junior Williamson Rest Area, drive south (toward Miguel's) on KY 11. You will pass Roadside and Torrent on the way. Turn right on Fixer Rd and make your first left. Take that road for 3.5 miles (making sure not to turn left where the road seems to want to take you) until you see a black oil tank on your left with a face painted on it. Make a right at the oil tank and then take the second right. Drive down a hill and park just to the right of a steep road that branches left. The main parking area is located here near the kiosk for the Pendergrass-Murray Recreational Preserve. From the parking area, walk a few feet past the kiosk to locate the trail marker. Follow the trail down and across a small bridge then along a dirt road for a few hundred yards until it heads off into the woods. Stay on the trail until it branches off to the right. You will see signs pointing the direction to the Solar Collector and The Darkside. Taking a right and heading uphill will take you to the Solar Collector. If you continue straight on the trail, it will take you to The Darkside.

What is up with the extra set of achors near Psychopathy? They seem to be anchors for the crack system. Has any one led it? or Know anything about it?

Gaar said on May 2nd, 2008
Yeah, I inquired about it long ago, and got no responce....I lead it on gear cliping the first 3 or 4 bolts of Chicken Boy about 3 years ago..Felt like easy 11 finger crack plus the start to chicken boy makes it 5.11ish....Gear is one Blue TCU, two Yellow TCU's, and one Orange and one Red TCU...Can be placed in any order.

What's the deal with the rope hanging left of On The Prowl? It's been there for years. The line looks like it has potential. Also, what's up with the mess of rope that's been hanging above Hiway Turtle forever?

Saxman said on April 11th, 2012
Removed the ancient rope above Highway Turtle. So old it had moss growing on it.

pigsteak said on January 8th, 2013
jeff, I am going to bolt that line this spring where that rope is hanging left of On The Prowl....too good to just be left like that.

dustonian said on January 8th, 2013
Yeah that one does look good. Jeff's rope? Figured it was an old Wes proj.

pigsteak said on January 8th, 2013
not jeffs...no idea who it belongs to...dustin, if you get to it first, bolt it. that rope has been hanging from that anchor for easily three years.
10
dustonian said on January 8th, 2013
Race ya.... j/k take it. Looks like a cool vert route if it has holds. My plate is full with all those rebolting crap.
11
pigsteak said on January 13th, 2013
pulled the rope and put the hardware in today...also got one bolted between this and pyrite....get some dryness I'll see if they are in my league.

dustonian said on March 25th, 2013
Routes 37a through 38c are some of the warmest and most sheltered around (in the PM)
13
J-Ru said on January 18th, 2015
What are the routes between Pyrite and On the Prowl? There are two or three and look pretty cool (and maybe hard). Based on the comments, Pigsteak bolted one of them.
14
pigsteak said on January 18th, 2015
I did bolt three lines right there...the rightmost one went at 12c if I recall..the two on the left were never sent by me. If they still have red tags by all means pull em.

Anyone find a south guidebook left either at the solar collector or beneath golden boy? if found call 612 850 0105

fosterdi said on April 11th, 2016
climbed here yesterday, awesome wall. only complaint, the south guidebook is misleading. The written directions are correct, but the map showing fixer road is wrong. The road drawn on the map is cave fork road. This took at least 30 more minutes because of how poor the road conditions were. Again, don't trust the map in the south guidebook, just read the paragraph on directions and follow that, or use your phones map. Ill post a photo with the correct road drawn in soon.
17
fosterdi said on April 11th, 2016
Here's a somewhat fixed map, http://i.imgur.com/26vSvvb.jpg. The correct road still runs of the map, but it should help

lol... no doubt that was an interesting drive

fosterdi said on April 13th, 2016
when we got to the parking lot and saw a Hyundai Sonata we knew we took the wrong road. that thing would never have gotten through what we did

BTW there is no rock on Cave Fork so don't even bother looking

Lol nope the map is correct your navigation just sucks and you missed the turn off for fixer.
22
Anonymous said on April 13th, 2016
The small stream below fixer road on the map you uploaded is where Cave Run road runs but is not shown on the map. Next time put down the joint and pay attention to where you are driving.
23
fosterdi said on April 13th, 2016
Anon you are so wrong. Here is the map from the motherload region page. http://i.imgur.com/rvViwzA.jpg The newly labeled fixer road is the correct road to take. here is a google map screen shot to confirm. I drew in the road to parking for Coal Bank Hollow. http://i.imgur.com/z07eOu7.jpg Compare that to my other posts image and you can see the obvious fault in the book. Im just trying to save other people the hassle that we went through.

These crags are all choss and full of snakes any way. Everyone should just go climb at Muir

Anonymous said on April 13th, 2016
Weren't you confused when it said turn on "Fixer" and you turned on "cave run"? Uhhhhhhh..... Sure your mom lets you out in the woods by yourself?
26
fosterdi said on April 13th, 2016
well the guide book labeled the roads wrong, which is my point. I followed the book, and it was wrong. that's that. I guess I should've followed google maps, but I don't always get service down there
27
fosterdi said on April 13th, 2016
I don't understand what there is to argue about, the guidebook labeled the roads wrong, that's just a fact. Maybe you're salty cause you wrote the book or something lol.
28
Anonymous said on April 13th, 2016
I don't care I am just so confused as to how you turned onto a road labeled "Cave Run" when both the written directions AND the map say the road is called "Fixer"???? That would be your first clue you were in the wrong spot...
29
fosterdi said on April 13th, 2016
you're confused as to what road i turned onto. i turned onto fixer road according to the book's map. but in reality that is not fixer road, but cave fork run. the real fixer road runs off the map to the north (pg 152 if you own the guidebook). If you turn onto fixer road according to the books map you are wrong.
30
Anonymous said on April 13th, 2016
Right.... but there are street signs on both Fixer and Cave run. So when you turned onto Cave run there was a sign right there staring you right in the face that said "Cave Run Road". take your face out of the book and look around next time.
31
fosterdi said on April 13th, 2016
there actually isn't a sign for cave fork road, but whatever. just trying to help people know not to go where the map says, and to follow the street sign for fixer instead
