This is the first route encountered at the path at the base of the rock. Look for a radiant overhanging left-facing dihedral on the south side. Dyno up the thin crack. Heave into a slot then stem to the top.

Nice shot there Ascentionist. The psychedelic nature of those sandstone walls just blows me away.

Thanks Larry, the guy in the pic is Tim Harrington, a western KY climber that you may have seen around the Red when you were here.

The '76 ascent was on a top rope. I lead it years later '82? with Martin Hackworth following. Solid rock down low, choss at the top.

Very cool to see a picture of Tim in his signature denim duds. What a character.

Nice rock down low, choss up top as Larry said. Good movement though, and worth a go if you like early trad climbs. First time I've used a straight-down hand jam. It has a little bit of everything, fingers to offwidth.
