Louisville doesn't have much rock to climb, and if you ask me, tree climbing feels more like rock than plastic pulling.

The rock quality is amazing; limestone full of crimps, slopers, jugs, and sidepulls. The left side is easy but challenging for beginners. The far right is the V2, next to that one on the left is the V1, and the long traverse is a V1. The V1's don't look very hard in the video, but it's the handholds that make them hard. There is one where you wrap your thumb around a tiny nubbin and you pinky and ring finger can hold on to a small edge. The traverse also has a sloper and a slopey crimp. The V2 is made difficult due to the slopey holds during almost the entire second half of the climb. The landing zone for the place takes a little getting used to since it's on a hill, this can be seen at the end of the video (which is the V1 without the direct start). I wish I could tell everyone in Louisville where this bouldering spot is, but sure enough we didn't climb there a single day without a caretaker coming by and giving us a speech about it being private property. He said he wouldn't call the cops, but if he keeps seeing us there all the time...

Me climbing the side of my house. After a hold broke I didn't think I was ever going to be able to climb it again, but I kept working at it and discovered this line.

Notes: This place has a ton of chiggers during the summer. After a hard rain it can take anywhere from 48 hours to a week before the main cliff closest to the parking lot (the first 7 climbs in this video) dries. Between The Mossy One and the parking lot there looks to be one more line(a 5.6 by the look of it) with a giant flake. I wouldn't trust that flake for a second.
(in order from right to left)
The Mossy One V-
The next 3 vertical problems have a bolt at the top for top roping, and
so I call them routes.
Right Route / Bump V2
Low Traverse from Left Route to Middle Route V5
Middle Route / Last Moves a Doozy V4
Left Route / Had a Dyno V1 (with dyno V3)
High Traverse from Middle Route to Left Route V6
The Block V3
The next five are in the dihedral.
Climbdown Crack V-
Dihedral Right (no crack or flake) V0
Dihedral Flake (hands on flake only) V1
Dihedral Left High Traverse V-
Dihedral Left Low Traverse (hands can't come within 1 foot of crack) V0
Extra Slabby (tricky topout - look for the knob on top to the left) V1
Cherokee's Finest (I said "best" in the video on accident) V4/V5
NOTE: there is a landing made out of logs to sit your pad on top of.
