About Friction Slab:

This large roadside boulder has always been popular for playing around on. The front side has been climbed on since the 1980; when the interest in bouldering took off, the back side provided potential for harder climbing.
Approach: From Miguel's drive south on KY 11 towards Roadside Crag for 2.5 miles until you see it a large boulder close to the side of the road on the right. Park in the pull off in front of the boulder.
