Description

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.

With climbs like Possum Lips, Sunshine,and Moonbeam ,anyone who bothered making the trip to Red (read: can at least climb 5.9) can have a fun day climbing classics that are overhanging although moderate.

With climbs like Tissue Tiger, Gung Ho, Nagypapa, Fuzzy Undercling, etc... the hard-body in you with delight with options of overhanging, hard, demanding and pumpy routes that have classic mvoes hard finishes and great picture oppurtunites.

Come on over to Military Wall, you won't leave dissapointed.

P.S. Stays in the sun until 2ish, most of the routes over 5.10 stay very dry in the rain.

Getting There

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.
