Directions to Bob Marley Crag

RRGCC
This wall is in property owned by RRGCC. Be respectful.
Drive 12.4 miles south on KY 11 from Miguel's toward Beattyville. Turn right on KY 498 and follow for 1.2 miles to Bald Fork Road. Take a sharp right onto Bald Fork Road and follow it as it curves left toward a house. Do not turn right at the first fork. After 0.3 miles the road turns to gravel and heads down a steep hill. At the bottom of the hill you will pass the parking area on the right for The Motherlode. Remain on the road for a total of 1.4 miles (0.6 miles past the Motherlode parking) until you see a wooden sign indicating the RRGCC parking area on the left. Park here and walk back out to the road. Cross the road and head straight up a gravel road for 0.2 miles to reach the trail which cuts left and uphill to the wall.

There is a new sport route at the left end of this crag. About 100 feet left of dogleg, and left of the hard route on the arete. It climbs through plates and then a short pocketed overhanging face.

The Bunker is in serious need of some fresh hardware. Bolts are pretty scary right now.

you donate it. I'll rebolt it.

Meadows said on February 19th, 2009
I'm going to attempt rallying together some people for a rebolt day (next summer). There's some scary looking hardware in the cave area. The rust on many of the bolts leeched out to the rock.

Andrew said on February 20th, 2009
I will help for sure, those bolts are some of the worst around. I have heard stories about their poor quality even when they were new. Some long glue ins for the roofs would be nice also.

I am going to replace the cord on the anchor of Beta-vul Pipeline this weekend with a couple of chains and quick links. That thing is scary--similar to the thing that broke when Ben and Laura fell and died.

theres a new route like if you keep walking on the trail past toker to the left you come to this bolted slab line that looks kinda easy.... anyone know info about it??

New climb to right of Beta-vul Pipeline. Typical Bob Marley start with steep pocket pulling to an atypical technical vertical headwall. Very fun. Seemed like solid 12a, maybe 12b. Great climb... needs to be added to the online guide. Thanks to who ever bolted it!
13
The_B said on January 11th, 2012
New climb to the right of Bettavul is "Eyeball Chaw" put up by me (Brendan Leader). Let's call it 12a and see how that sits. The more traffic the better it will get. Enjoy!

dustonian said on January 11th, 2012
cool, nice looking line... just curious, did you follow the steep leaning arete or head up the face? use the 'submit a route' tool in the menu above to add it to the site.
15
Cromper said on January 11th, 2012
Super great addition Brendan! Didnt think there was any room left in that cave.
16
dustonian said on January 11th, 2012
Just curious, did anyone ever get to rebolting the cave routes?
17
The_B said on January 12th, 2012
Thanks guys. Route has been submitted. I pulled the arete/lip at the last bolt for a few crimpy face moves. Interested to see what other people come up with. With rock that featured it'd be unlikely to see two people climb it the same way. I don't reckon the cave ever got it's rebolting. I'd be down to help out...

Whats up with the route next to "Waiting for JJ"??? on the same wall...short....??

climb2core said on September 3rd, 2012
We pulled the bottom draw off this today. Grooved and sharp. Better off not to replace and just use your own for the day.

climb2core said on September 4th, 2012
Hmm, not sure how my above comment ended up here... meant for it to be on Betuvul page.

I left my draws on Velvet 2 days ago, now the top ones are missing! Can the person who took them please return them. Thanks!

whoneedsfeet said on March 6th, 2013
Hey I have a rope on either tacit or the line to the right. If you find yourself at the anchors and see my silver sterling please feel free to drop it and stash in the cave. Shoot me a pm if you do I'll reward with a hardy handshake and a ale 8 at migs

whoneedsfeet said on March 7th, 2013
Nevermind about the rope, don't drop it.

What are the two new routes between JJ and Dreadlocked??

crimpandpeel said on May 3rd, 2014
those new lines on the left were bolted by Sarah Gross- left line is Menty 11b, right is Mentor 12a, pretty fun lines, climb left to scope the right, there are a few way around at the Rasta Wall, i'll submit the info soon as a couple climbs aren't open yet

Wow, someone really gridbolted the living shit out of this crag recently... sad

Every little shit pile of a squeeze job is being bolted to fuck at this crag. Ridiculous...

someone is turning this wall into an overbolted shitpile. Anyone know who is grid bolting this formerly cool place into an industrial eyesore?

Hasn't the cave been grid bolted for years?

climb2core said on December 22nd, 2014
Somehow I doubt that those lines will ruin anyone's day at the crag. Also, ironic that anon is asking for names, lol.
32
crimpandpeel said on December 23rd, 2014
And... every one of those new lines are a blast, you are only bitchin if you can't get off the ground

J-Ru said on May 16th, 2016
What are all of the new routes right of the cave? There are at least 3 red tags and several more routes that are not in the online guide.
34
Anonymous said on May 25th, 2017
I'm not sure what those routes are but I'm sure no one is going to send them anytime soon, they've been red tagged for a few years now.
