Directions to The Arena - CLOSED

RRGCC
This wall is in property owned by RRGCC. Be respectful.
Drive about 14 miles south on KY 11 (toward Miguel's) from the Junior Williamson Rest Area toward Beattyville. Turn right on KY 498. Drive 1.2 miles to a sharp right curve. Just beyond this curve, and at the crest of the hill, take a sharp right on Bald Rock Road (gravel road). There is a sign for a church here. The road will immediately fork left near a trailer. Take this left fork. Follow the gravel road 1.65 miles to a set of 3 entranceways on the right (about 0.1 miles past a road leading uphill to the right just past Bob Marley Crag). Take the second of the 3 entranceways. This is the last road you can take off to the right. If you were to pass this road you will come to a dead-end/turnaround in about 200 yards. Turn up the road and stay on it until you come to a fork in the road. Take the left fork and head up a steep hill. At the top of the hill, the road will curve sharply to the left. Stay on the road, passing a pond on your left, and continue up another steep hill. Continue past the road to Oil Crack Rock and stay on the same road. Locate a pulloff on your left which marks the first parking area. It is best to park here if you're headed for the 5.10 wall (routes #1-#4). If you're headed for the 5.11 wall (routes #16-#19) you may want to continue on the road a bit. Eventually you will come to a sharp left turn and a small steep hill. At the top of this hill and to the right is the second parking area for The Arena.

It kills me that this crag is closed. It was one of my favorites and there are still some routes there I didn't get to do :-( I still can't understand why we will never climb there again? Does anyone care about re-opening this besides me?

Ok, sorry about my impulsive comment above. I read the "why the crag is closed" comment, but I don't know how to delete my comments once they are on here :-0

I understand there was an ownership change for Oil rights? Any discussion with new owners?

No news? This wall looks great.. Wish we could do something to help reopen it.
