Unlikely Wall was created when IN-37 was built leaving behind a limestone wall above the highway. There are both bolted routes and boulder problems to be found here. Although the rock can be very chossy in spots there are good climbs to be found.

Getting There 

Option 1: From Bloomington take HWY 37 South to Harrodsburgh Exit. Park under the overpass. Locate the trail leading to the roadcut on the West side of the overpass.

Option 2: From Bloomington take HWY 37 South and about 1 mile before the Harrodsburgh Exit park on the pullout on the right or drive up the dirt track to the top of the hill.

The name is fitting, but I thought this was a surprisingly cool little area for what it is-- definitely some fun problems. Poison ivy scared me off from some of the problems and I'm still picking ticks off me and my dog a few days later. Driving up the dirt track off of IN-37 seems way better than trying to bushwhack uphill to get here, maybe it's better in winter?
