Directions to Pinch-em Tight Ridge

USFS
This wall is in property owned by USFS. Be respectful.
From the intersection of KY 77 with KY 715 near Fortress Wall, stay on KY 715 for 1.5 miles to a small road on the right which leads down to a large parking area for the Sheltowee Trace trail. Pinch-em Tight Ridge is the large wall across the river to the southeast. From the parking area, walk downstream along the river to a ford and cross. It is also possible to hike upstream until you reach a pedestrian bridge to cross but this will add a 1/2 hour onto the approach time. The river crossing is usually pretty high during the winter and spring but lower the rest of the year. From the crossing, hike uphill to the right heading for the wall. There is a tall rockhouse a few hundred feet north of Pinch-em Tight Gap which is used as a reference for some of the routes. The rockhouse was referred to as "The Hole" in previous guidebooks and can be seen from the road.
