Directions to Moonshiner's Wall

USFS
This wall is in property owned by USFS. Be respectful.
From the intersection of KY 77 with KY 15 near Fortress Wall, stay on KY 715 for 7.1 miles until you reach a one lane concrete bridge. Park on the left just before crossing the bridge. This is also the parking area for Wall of Denial and Eagle Point Buttress. Follow a dirt road uphill from the parking area for 300 feet. When you see a large boulder, hike up to the southern end of the wall.

there's two 5.9 cracks side by side up there that are kinda fun. They were both put up awhile ago

Walk left of the routes, pass a blocky dihedral, and keep going until you see the perfect hands, overhanging dihedral. AWESOME route. 5.10d, I guess. (Open project)

The route goes at 5.10c/d. I named it Oberon FA?: Jason Haas (2005) 65 ft. Rap Tree. Sweet, clean line, more people should get on it for sure.

From the top of the approcah trail 10+ feet to your right is a finger crack that splits the right side of the main wall. Boulder up 10 feet to a good stance plug some gear get a hand jam and using face hold and fingerlocks make your way to the top! To decend rap from massive chock stone 150 feet to the right and around the corner. Fixed gear. 5.9 *** FA? Gaar Lausman, Chris Rice, James Fargnoli Name: Still Young 60ft

See the first post above, the route you are claiming Gaar went free several years ago by me and the one was done years before that as well by another party

Around the corner to the right of Miss Floppy Chops is a large overhang with a hole in the roof which opens onto a ledge. The floor is sandy and large boulders, sloping up to the wall. Face features and cracks might tempt you to climb up through the hole as I did. Don't. It is chossy, and there are a ton of large blocks waiting to be dislodged. The climbing isn't fun anyway.

Led the face directly in front of the end of the approach trail today - just to the right of the arete. Started right of the roof and traversed up and left over the roof. Anybody done this before? Appeared to be unclimbed. Dubbing it Methanol Madness 10b unless I hear otherwise!

WDW4, is that the route that is right of the other lines as well? Kinda looks like a big, dumb version of the underling? I was gonna climb it and call it the Dumberling, but found something more enticing...
