Access Issue: Access to GFNP (Roadside) REQUIRES a Daily Permit Details

Permit Required

***Climbers MUST NOT climb at GFNP without a daily permit per person in each group.*** This route is privately owned and requires a daily per-user permit obtained from the Graining Fork Nature Preserve website.
This isn't about just you getting away with climbing for a day without a permit--this is about the climbing community respecting private land to ensure continued access privileges. Don't be selfish--get a permit.


A nice thin crack and face just left of Fatha, this route appears harder than 5.8 from the base but is easier than it looks. Climb the low-angle ramp up and left, then step left into a beautiful thin carck and flake to the top.


This route is just left of Fatha, about 75' left of Roadside attraction. To get to Roadside Crag drive about 6 miles South on KY 11 from the rest area and park on the right. The trailhead is across the street, and a short approach leads to the base of the wall at the start of Roadside Attraction.


Bring a rack with mostly small gear and only a couple of larger pieces to maybe 2". There is a bolted belay at the top.
