About Clack Mountain:

Semi-dense bouldering area comprised of sandstone rockfall. 40+ problems and growing with a nice scattering of difficulty. Terrific slabs, slopers, and steep pockets make this area one of Kentucky's best. Also home to the mega-classic Three Pocket Problem.

NOTE: the rock formations past the first half mile are on private property and are closed to climbing.
