Directions to Dip Wall

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. Turn right on 9B and drive 2.9 miles to a low concrete bridge which crosses the East fork of Indian Creek. Park on the right before you cross the bridge and hike across the road to a jeep trail. Follow the jeep trail until you reach a tributary. Cross the tributary twice and continue on the trail keeping the tributary on your left. Eventually the trail will cut sharply uphill to the right. Continue on the trail which eventually terminates at a horseshoe shaped wall. Walk left past a huge amphitheatre housing two currently closed routes. Continue walking left to reach routes 1-7.

many of the routes on the right stay dry (didn't go to the left, so not sure about that)

Were you scared of Sam I am, or Winkin, Blinkin and Nod, or was it Green Eggs and Ham that freaked you out?

Over the Hedge 5.3 - Above the rhodo thicket a few yards south (right) of Purple Cleaning Company climb the clean and solid low angle flake to a ledge. There are a couple options for the second pitch but beware of very loose and large blocks.

dont attempt going to this trail after a good rain, it is flooded completely

Ascentionist said on November 3rd, 2009
This has long been known as a good rainy day wall, but you have to be cognizant of the real world conditions before going up. After a rainy day of climbing up there many years ago we came out of Dip Wall to find the trail had flooded while we were climbing. We had to bushwhack up the steep hill to the west to get around the bog that had formed. Of course then we had fun trundling large rocks into the whirlpool that had formed over the inlet pipes for the low dam. They shot out the other side like cannonballs. And when I saw large rocks I mean it took four of us to roll them over to the pipe. Good fun!

Anyone have any updates since the construction down 9B?

Park at the new 9B ending. Do *not* cross Indian Creek. Walk past the gate and through the new camping area. A few hundred feet beyond the gate, and just beyond the camping area, you'll cross a 3-4 foot wide streambed. This stream drains the Dip Wall holler. Cross the stream and start walking left / uphill along the stream towards the trees. Note: grass is tall here. Once in the trees, you'll fine an obvious trail. You'll pass a few cairns along the way, but the path is defined well enough they're not really needed. I wouldn't recommend walking up the streambed since the trail and the creek diverge soon after entering the trees.
