Home to some of the only bouldering in Ohio. Great day trip if it's close by with some definite classics.

Witches Front/Back and Trailer Park are the two more boulder dense areas with difficulty ranging from V0 to V7.

Route information, photos, and topographies are from the wonderful people at athensbouldering.blogspot.com/. Without them, gathering all this information in one place would not be possible.

Thank you so much!
