Rock Climbing

#5 Warren County

This area was grouped together for several reasons. Access is always an issue due in part to the fact that the majority of areas are privately-owned. Climbers must be EXTREMELY cautious and considerate to locals in order to avoid further problems. Both closed and open areas are listed, but please check the current status prior to climbing for any changes. Kentucky Rock & Sports Trust, Inc. (KRST) will have the latest information, so check there to be sure. Areas are listed alphabetically and rated on a Warren County scale. Directions to the crags are available from KRST, Inc.

Secondly, the climbing, while perfect for an afternoon, is not in an enormous quantity at any one place. The climbs are short, pumpy, and mostly overhanging on limestone and sandstone. There are several cracks, but most of the rock is edgy or pocketed.
