Yup.

Tower has both a trail and a sign.

WOD at least has a trail.

We found it in June, strolled up just under Frenchburg Overhangs on our first time up there. so what do I get for surviving a triple dog dare? a tripple dipped ice cream?

As for the Dunkan rock dare - been there, tried that, and failed miserably. We actually pretty much gave up when we realized there was no trail. As for Tower rock, mock all you want - I wasn't alone. There is a trail but we somehow got off of it and got to a cliff face but ending up bushwacking through a mile of cliffline finding no climbs before giving up.

Jeff,

No, I didn't design the app. A couple of guys got in touch with me asking if I'd like to do an app. Actually two different people contacted me. One of them had videos of their app in action (for another crag) and they were really cool. They wanted to approach it commercially so I told them I couldn't do it (don't want to step on Dave's toes). So later on I was talking with Dave and he said he was interested in an iPhone app. So I told him I had just the guys for him and they hooked up and went at it. I'll be getting GPS points and giving some input to the design but most of it is out of my hands. I mean, it's gonna be my guidebook that's melded into the app but I'm not doing any of the programming or anything like that.

What? You can't see Dunkan rock from the road anymore? Have the trees grown that much? We used to just drive up the road, going real slow until we saw the rock from the one spot on the road that you can see it from. Always bushwacked our way straight to it.

Looking forward to checking it out Ray. Hope you get a good cut for all your work.
Larry, you can see Dunkan Rock when the leaves are down. Maybe with leaves on if you know just where to look. Looks like I was there in the month of April so not much growth then.
Those trees must grow fast.

its probably cheaper and if its designed specifically for the iPhone, it'll be more user friendly

This is one of the nicest apps I have seen! If I remember correctly you do not have to have phone service for the app to function, all of the data is downloaded to your phone when you purchase the app.

Since the location element is based on GPS points, you also do not need phone service.

Can't wait for this to be available! Should be late spring I believe.

Very cool, but there's something nice about a ripped up, mangled guidebook you bring everywhere with you.

So gone are the days of walking up to Sunshine and Moonbeam and asking if you are at Military Wall?
Ahhh the times they're a changin'.
I see they are still lopping off mountains in Eastern Kentucky. Electricity isn't cheap.
