Directions to Between Wall

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. Drive 1.5 miles down 9B after it's intersection with 9A. Park in a small pull-off on the right. Cross the East Fork of Indian Creek to the east of the parking area via the concrete dam and ford. Immediately turn right and follow a dirt road for about 150 yards or so until it begins to go uphill. In that vicinity you'll see what appears to be a three way fork. Continue uphill on the main trail via the left fork. After 200 yards, you will pass a huge spire on the right. For most of the climbs, follow the old road for 200 yards more, and when the road doglegs uphill to the right, hike up to the cliff.

Someone got "right" and "left" confused when they described the location of the routes at Between Wall. Hemlock Rap is the left-most (as you face the cliff from the ground) route at this wall - everything else is right of it.
