not too shabby. makes a nice arching route with some fun moves and a little spice feel.

fun heelhook start (if you stay left) to some good dancing and balancing

Anchors need another quick link apiece. I would have put em on if I had them.

My crew and i thought this thing should be named "Union Terminal". The start hold that i uploaded a picture of bears a striking resemblance to the terminal which is situated in Cincinnati.... and frankly, the name "Unknown-Volunteer-Wall-I" blows.

This route was put up by Curt Farley a few years ago. It was named Farley's Folly. I think he graded it 9+, but i guess it is harder.

Needs chains and I will add them next time I am out there. Cool climb and is cleaning up nicely.

Slaberific wandering up an odd face after a bizarre roof start.... definitely and odd one!

Least favorite route I have been on at the Red. Really odd and poorly bolted I thought.

Has a great start with that roof to some good crimp climbing. After the ledge it gets weird and the bolt placement does seem odd. Ended up going up and left and using the arete for the last several bolts to the chains.

I actually really enjoyed this route. Fun start and nice rest in the middle. also a really cool top out. I agree the bolting at the top is super weird though.
