#9 Rockcastle Cliffs
Perhaps because of the overwhelming draw to Red River Gorge, these cliffs have been overlooked for climbing potential. Our exploration indicates enough rock for one or two hundred routes, sport and trad, of all grades. Someone needs to spend a week there and develop the place. These cliffs can be found in the Daniel Boone National Forest, just east of the Laurel Co./Pulaski Co. border north of Hwy 80.
NOTES: Undeveloped, with potential for 100-150 routes, sport/trace/toprope; there is quite a bit of exposed, south-facing, overhanging sandstone, probably at least 150' tall. Keep clicking here as we are exploring and updating.
