Directions to Pistol Ridge

USFS
This wall is in property owned by USFS. Be respectful.
Drive 1.4 miles down County Road 1067 from the steel bridge on KY 77 (1.2 miles from the Long Wall parking area). The gravel road changes to asphalt at the Menifee and Powell county line. About a mile farther is a farmhouse and barn on the left and a gravel road on the right (Forest Service Road 9). Turn down that road and proceed 1.1 miles and cross a bridge. This brings you to the intersection of 9A and 9B. Park on your right and hike down 9B about 150 feet until you see the trailhead on your left. Follow the trail through a low limestone cliffband until you reach the base of the wall.

"Way of the Peaceful Warrior", 5.10 starts just a few feet left of Chem Studs. Boulder up to the arching overhang and traverse right (passing over top of Chem Studs) and up through the overhang that is the finish of The Refridgerator. FA: Jerry Bargo and Steve Must, 1998

Anyone climb the off width to the right of Fresh Start? looks killer if you have a few big bro's sitting around or if fear is not a factor for you! just curious...

The OW to the right of Fresh Start was sent in 2001 by Dave Texter and Justin Riddell. Dave called it Stale Finish 5.10-
