What about Evil? And the routes over by Nut Grabber or whatever it's called...?

Which route used to be called "Burgled"? Was "Up for Grabs originally "Pipebomb"?

Burgled and Pipe Bomb haven't been added yet... patience people, patience.

We (Phil Wilkes, Curtis and Audrey Gale-Dyer) FAed the dihedral left of Jinga today. We named it "Less than Graceful" and gave it 5.9 with two stars. rap off big tree at the top.

Did the OW / squeeze chimney line in between Evil and Under the Influence this weekend with Kenneth. Seemed to be at least 9+, but maybe not quite as hard as God of the Gaps. Having at least 2 each of #4-6 will keep you off the ground, but I think a 7-8" piece would have made it more enjoyable. Didn't see evidence of previous traffic - anyone been up this guy? If not how about Wizard's Sleeve.

Nice Meg! Good lookin line & nice name... Or, "Belayers with Small Bladders"... ;)

Nice little 10 went in by Incognito. Too bad it's not online yet. Probably waiting for proper anchors.

any chance of this re-opening, any progress towards such? got here once 2 weeks before closure and it was already one of my favorite walls.

In addition to parking are there any other reasons for the closure of Area 6? Or is it simply a question of avoiding traffic on fragile roads and avoiding parking in the very limited space.

Got escorted out at gunpoint over the summer. This area is patrolled by the land owners who are tired of climbers...

one of my favorite walls at the red... RRGCC seems more focused on buying new land

Anonymous said on May 9th, 2018
I have no critique of the RRGCC, as previous anon seems to have, but I will agree that this crag is amazing. It's an entire cliff full of K.S.B. and Amarillo-style lines. Maybe one day...

There was no "closure" of Area 6. It was never open and never for sale.

Funny how this crag seems to be open when everything else is closed.

Lee Co. Judge Executive and Kentucky Governor both have ordered 14 day quarantine for anyone coming into Kentucky from out of state. If you work at Rockhouse, etc., and have out-of-state plates, carry a copy of your lease or mail to your local address in case you get pulled over.

Man, I am so happy I don't climb in the gorge anymore. There is better rock, longer routes, and zero people in the unknown areas of southeastern Kentucky. You can't close a climbing area if no one knows about it. Enjoy dealing with Disneyland and all of the bullshit that goes along with it.

Cool story bro. Glad you don’t climb here either although I’m sure you’ll be back. Eventually all the “secret” crags get leaked by one of your “friends” you took out there and the cascade takes effect. Nothing is new under the sun, especially douche bags such as in the climbing world.

If climbers gets arrested or "escorted" from A6, it's partly because so many climbers could find it on this forum. They're not finding it in the guidebook.
29
Anonymous said on August 26th, 2020
Exactly. If everyone's so worried about the landowners finding out, it seems completely counterintuitive to have it advertised on a public website. The moderators should remove it. It's not much of a secret anymore.

Or the Coalition could just build a trail to it from Sore Heel, considering the cliff line is RRGCC Property..

Thanks but I think I'll keep it advertised in the public website. Pretty common to keep climbing areas in guidebooks/sites for historical purposes.

Guess that's that. Hopefully the turd choppah doesn't strike and keeps that saw at bay.

The Turd Choppah would never chop such beautiful routes as is at this crag. Know that
