2nd Ascent Of Twenty Four Karats (5.14c)

Adam Taylor has done the likely 2nd ascent of Jonathan Siegrist’s Twenty Four Karats (5.14c) in Kentucky’s Red River Gorge.  While generally preferring to live life under the online climbing radar, Taylor has made news in previous years for other sends in the Red including his FA of Golden Ticket (5.14d) and his 2nd ascent of Pure Imagination (5.14d), another route first done by Jonathan Siegrist.

Lucifer (5.14c) Repeated (Again) By Adam Taylor

In a post summarizing what sounded like a pretty miserable Labor Day weekend weather-wise at the Red River Gorge, the folks at the Team Saucisson blog casually dropped the fact that low key local Adam Taylor repeated Lucifer (5.14c).  Taylor had previously done many of the Red’s other hard routes like Pure Imagination (5.14d) and his route Golden Ticket (5.14d).

Update:  Well, I jumped the gun a bit as Taylor was simply repeating Lucifer again, not for the first time.  Thanks to Eddie for helping to set me straight.

Fifty Words For Chump

Fifty Words For Chump

A couple of weeks back, there was a minor controversy at the Red River Gorge in Kentucky where two of the bolt hangers on Fifty Words For Pump (5.14c) were flattened by Adam Taylor.  He apparently was unhappy over the existence of said bolts along with the (alleged) stealing of his project draws.  A minor […]
