A short approach to a compact crag with a decent variety of 10s and 11s. The sector’s best routes are two 5.11s in the middle of the area—Return of the Mohan (5.11d) and Hammer Time (5.11b) are worth a visit to the area.

Getting There 

From the main parking area with the wooden kiosk, cross the river on the footbridge and walk the main road passing the first faint road on the left and turning left at the second, more traveled road. There should be a nice sign at this road intersection that points left to Serenity Point and right to the Highlands/Corner Pocket areas. After taking the left turn on the road, hike the road for a couple hundred feet to the first obvious trail going uphill on the right. Hike up this trail until it forks at a rocky prow. Go left at this rocky prow (the right trail goes to Chaos Crag) and the routes will be on the right just a short distance further.
Approach takes about 10 minutes from the parking lot.


Serenity Point gets morning sun with the majority of the crag going into the shade around 2pm.

The wall’s best line. It gets high accolades on Steep, fingery pocket pulling for most the entire way. Step up off the ground and get into the sustained pocket pulling through all five bolts. Some jugs show up just when you want them to get you to the anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in Kentucky
