Directions to Fortress Wall

USFS
This wall is in property owned by USFS. Be respectful.
From the parking lot of the Junior Williamson Rest Area in Slade, turn left (north) on KY 11, drive 0.1 miles under the Mountain Parkway overpass to a "T" intersection with KY 15. Turn left (east) and continue for 1.5 miles, then turn right (north) on KY 77. This highway is also known as "Nada Tunnel Road", and you may see a street sign so designated at this intersection. Drive 4.4 miles through the tiny town of Nada, through the tunnel, and over the steel bridge (stay right after you cross the steel bridge) to the intersection with KY 715. KY 77 curves left near an old barn while KY 715 continues straight. Follow KY 77 around to the left, past the barn on the right and uphill for 0.3 miles to an available pulloff on the right. The trail begins across the road from the third pulloff. Follow the trail uphill to the base of Fortress Wall. You will pass Party Time on the way so do not hike too far if you plan on doing this route.

somone should check the math for the number of routes, there is 33 trad routes but 34 routes total.... so where is the hidden 5.10 located?

One is a toprope (Pigs in Space). Toprope lines aren't listed in the graph as a separate column because there just aren't that many of them.
