Directions to Lower Small 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. Stay on KY 715 (don't take the curve to the left) for about 5.2 miles (0.7 miles from the pulloff for Tower) to a pulloff on the right. The pulloff will be directly across from a wide, rectangular boulder on the left side of the road. Hike uphill just right of the boulder following a faint trail. When the trail ends, head straight up to the wall. You will probably end up somewhere around the vicinity of Blue Biner. If you are lost when you get to the wall, just look for an obvious, sharp, clean and wide dihedral which is Dicey at Best.

if you have free time and a chain saw, the approach trail could use a bit of lovin. as is, it's easy to locate and the yellow surveyors tape helped. it just involved a bit of limbo-ing to get through the downed trees in one section. and be sure to keep your eye out for copperheads at the base while you're looking up trying to figure out which route is which. i almost stepped on a big fat one that was settled into a piles of leaves!

Isnt this area in Clifty Wilderness ? Which would mean no power tools such as chainsaws.

Anyone know if trees provide good shade at the base of Lower Small Wall during the summer?

They do, but the humidity amplifies the sunbeams and will fry you alive if you step out of the shade for a split second.
