Description

Global had a revival of sorts a few years ago. Previously it was home to a bunch of hardman obscure classics and a couple 5.7 crack. But then someone bolted a couple more moderate routes, cleaned out another 5.7 crack, and suddenly Global Village went from mostly unknown to high traffic gumby cliff.

There are some fantastic routes here and it has definitely earned it's attention. The wall needs some maintenance to trails for sure.

Getting There

From Slade, drive south on KY11, passing by Miguel's, for 4.8 miles to a grassy meadow area and pulloff parking area on the right (37.7508, -83.66375). From the parking, cross KY11 to find a trail leading uphill.  At the large boulder and trail split, hike right.  Repeat again for the second Boulder (left takes you to the far side of Emerald City).  Follow this for a bit, through a drainage and up a hill to a third split. Left goes directly up rebar steps to the Eureka/Father and Son/Vision area and the right goes to the harder sport routes and the right end of the cliff where Casual Viewing is located.
