Description 

The See Rocks are impossible to ignore if you drive up the South Fork valley. There are three of them lined up in a north/south aspect. From the summits of the rocks you can get a spectacular view of the surround Cumberland Plateau. Access is tricky, but can be had with permission. The rocks themselves are on USFS property, but surrounded completely by private land.

Getting There 

Drive along route 1639 (South Fork Road) until the road forks. The See Rocks are situated dead ahead.

Access can be had from the valley (tricky at best). Best to go with a local.

Climbing Season

Featured Route For See Rocks

North Face, aka the Cable Route 5.7+ 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b KY : Red River Gorge : ... : North Rock
The route is not noteworthy in itself. It is the only viable route to the summit though. From the west end of the rock climb up to a vegetated ledge. Traverse the ledge to the left edge and scramble up an exposed, short low angle arete. Traverse the next ledge left until you can see a scrap of steel cable dangling from the sky. Find your way along the cable to the summit protecting where you can. DON'T TRUST YOUR LIFE TO THE CABLE!...[more]   Browse More Classics in KY
