Description

Mt. Olive Rock is a small crag with just a handful of routes, one of the being the super classic South Side of the Sky. It is easily visible from the road, the approach being a 1 minute scramble up the hill to the crag.

Getting There

From the Slade exit off Mountain Parkway Take KY 11 South to KY 498.  Turn right on  KY 498 until it intersects with KY 52.  Go right on KY 52.  After 2.5 miles you will pass KY 399 on your left.  Mt. Olive Rock is on the left side of the road about 0.5 miles further.  After the first hairpin turn, park along the road on the right side at a break in the guardrail.  Walk down the road 150 feet and bushwack up to the cliff face.  If you go through a second hairpin turn, you have gone too far.
