Military Wall is awesome and will fill you whole climbing day for youand your entourage from the warm-up to the last red-point attempt on your project.
From Slade, KY (Miguel's): Highway 15 west, 1 mi. Take right onto hwy 77 driving past some seriously bad looking real estate. Continue on 77 through Nada Tunnel and down the other side and some crazy switchbacks. When the hill ends there will be a parking lot on your left, park then hike 100' back up the road, cross it and the brook at the little bridge, make your way up the trail, take a right for Military Wall continue up the trail for 5-10min then round a corner and you'll have Sunshine and Moonbeam on your right and Tissue Tiger, Fuzzy Undercling, etc ahead of you on the overhanging intimidating wall.

Fuzzy Undercling 5.11- 6c 22 VIII+ 22 E3 5c KY : Red River Gorge : Military Wall
A good climb with a technical crux down low, perhaps 2 bolts up, and then on pumpy pockets the rest of the way up with some big moves. Which feels harder to you depends on your skills set. The route was commonly done in flip-flops or hiking boots.The name of this climb, I believe to be a not-so-subtle euphemism... either that or there was some moss in a pocket in the early days. Regardless, I doubt the latter was the sole motivation behind the route's name....[more] Browse More Classics in KY
