Wall of Denial is a great place to go to escape the crowds. Except when the crowds show up trying to avoid you.
Park at the concrete bridge parking area. Hike up the Douglas Trail as if going to Eagle's Nest. The trail will bend right (south) with the river past Eagle's Nest. After a few more minutes you will cross a shallow, but narrow gully. Immediately after crossing look for a trail heading into the rhododendron on the left. After making the split look for another split and follow th eleft trail up the hill toward the cliffline. Once at the main cliff walk around the corner to the right. The wall faces south.

To some it will seem runout and to others the bolts will seem undersized. Regardless, this is a classic route and deserves your attention.Edge up a black streak to the ledge. Traverse left until you can move up on to the ledge and belay from anchors above Buckeye Testpiece....[more] Browse More Classics in KY
