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 take a sharp right on an unmarked gravel road. Follow the gravel road 0.8 miles straight through an intersection, past some houses with dogs, down a steep hill, alongside a small cliff on your left, to a clearing at the bottom. Park on your right in the Motherlode parking area or continue by turning right on the first gravel road .3 miles past the Motherlode parking area. There is a Sore Heel Parking, sign located at the turn off pointing the way. Follow the gravel road up the hill past a row of large bright blue storage tanks, make a sharp right-hand turn (.2 mile after turn off), follow the main gravel road for another mile before following the road down a short hill to the new parking area at the bottom of the hill on the right. Look for new trailhead signs pointing to the climbing areas along a (freshly cleared) dirt road leading up a hill from the parking area The first route encountered is Citizen's Arete.

What's with the slab routes around the amphitheater of Shady Grove, are they going into this guide? I think they are over a year old now.

bolted by Ron Snider. 5.9 at the bottom of the hill, then at the top of the hill a 5.10d on the left and a 5.10a on the right. All fun!

There is a climb to the right of the 12c's. It is further around the horseshoe, off by itself with fixed draws on it. Anyone knows what it is?

when do the old ropes get pulled that have been hanging here for years? even if someone is still bolting, there is no way I'd jug that old rope. does anyone care of I pull it down? it is an eyesore.

Piggy was your last post about Imagine there is no Heaven or the really nice looking line between it and Pile Driver which now has no rope on it but a small piece of blue webbing on the last hanger?

heavyc said on June 27th, 2009

I bolted it late spring and are still working out the line. It is a closed project with no name right now.

I finished up the thing left of Pile Driver this past weekend. I am calling it Taste The Rainbow. I think it is "some flavor of light 5.13". Google Taste The Rainbow, you will know the picture that inspired the name!
