Sister crag to the Hideout, the Great Wall has a good assortment routes for beginners to experts. The lines tend to be shorter than at the Hideout but rock quality is excellent. There's a good day's worth of climbing between the two walls.
If you're already at the Hideout, continue left down the trail past International Route of Pancakes for about 100' to La Escalada, the first route at the Great Wall. Or from the valley trail, pass the turnoff for the Hideout and continue to a sharp right turn just after crossing the stream again. Watch for a sign directing you to the Great Wall.

Hardest moves are down low figuring out the start. Depending on height there are a couple different variations. Shorter people usually find it easier to start farther right on the overhang or jumping to the good hold just out of reach. After clipping the first bolt it is more like 9+ all the way to the anchors. Big holds and lots of rests if needed. ...[more] Browse More Classics in KY
