There would be quite a few harder routes except that Dave Hume moved to Boulder. He had the drive to bolt routes and the ability to send them.

good point. it would be cool if a super strong guy became a local. i am sure we can suffer along without one though. but if not, maybe we could just recruit a few of the many no name spanish kids that onsights 14 a/b to come and live in lexington. After the three days it took him/her to send all of our hardest routes, surely they would start bolting new ones.

why couldn't a local become a super strong guy?

why couldn't it be a super strong girl?

We are from Kentucky, we are far too laid back to become super strong

does it really matter if you have a pajagina or a penal unit? can't we just be climbers? I don't judge a book by its camel toe or lack there of luvy

Why would a 5.14 climber stay in kentucky when they could go somewhere that wasn't insanely humid and full of rednecks?

Katie Brown (and she's just one of them, although probably in the top). They become strong and leave. With that ability/talent, possibilities abound worldwide. Why stay?

oh she travels around in a somewhat transient nature like crankmas eluded to earlier, different stone lends itself to different movement which leads to greater awareness, its helpful for anyone but seems critical for someone who deems themself to be elite, wouldn't you need to travel to see if indeed your standards are up to the standards of other climbers and climbs?

Great thread SCIN.

I think you can find what you are looking for at the Red. I have found a few cracks that were unclimbed. Allah has found some 13b's and a few other routes to test himself and others. Kris and Ray found some upside down crack climbing(levitation type routes). Pigsteak has found some killer 12's. Porter Jarrard found some steep climbing close to the road. Steve Petro found a crack that was perfect for him. RRO has found some faceclimbing and slab. I gotta believe Sharma could walk around the Red and find some stuff that would be "elite level".

The only thing the Red doesn't have is something realy tall.
