Watch out, these guys are all over the place.


Global had a revival of sorts a few years ago. Previously it was home to a bunch of hardman obscure classics and a couple 5.7 crack. But then someone bolted a couple more moderate routes, cleaned out another 5.7 crack, and suddenly Global Village went from mostly unknown to high traffic gumby cliff.

There are some fantastic routes here and it has definitely earned it's attention. The wall needs some maintenance to trails for sure.

Getting There 

At the large boulder and trail split, hike right. Follow this for a bit, through a drainage and up a hill to another split. Left goes directly up to the Eureka/Father and Son/Vision area and the right goes to the harder sport routes and the right end of the clif where Casual Viewing is located.

Can you say vertical jug climbing? This route follows the orange and purple streaks up the vertical wall left of Fahter and Son.This route is very popular and for good reason.Despite the easy grade it can seem heady to lead and there is the element of loose rock involved on this route. It's worth the walk in though, the moves are fantastic and the route unforgettable for beginners....[more]   Browse More Classics in KY
