TR on the shaded side of the wall, Improvised rout...

Description 

400 foot long retaining wall located near downtown Cincinnati. It used to hold back water, but a new wall was built behind it. I found two 2-bolt routes on the wall, but mostly it seems to be used for its traversing potential. Its about 30 feet high, and seems like the Toproping would be almost limitless, if not too repetitive. There is climbing on either side of the wall, making good sun-shade options. The limestone bricks are becoming polished low on the wall. Nice flat, grassy landing.


Getting There 

Follow Eden Park Drive to Martin street. Park and walk 40 feet to the wall clearly visible from the road. Not too far from the Ohio river or I-75.

Also has a long but not as high wall way in the back of the field underneath Mirror Lake that is great for traversing, bouldering, short topropes, or if you want to to just to solo. Its only about 20' high so its great to solo. Can make any of the above activities as hard as you like or as easy as you like. Its up to you. Just be aware: some of the rock near the top of this wall might be loose.

This location is great for bouldering/soloing (depending on your skill level) and also a good training ground for teaching friends the "ropes" literally. It is smooth and technical in some areas while other areas are filled with textured jugs, but watch out... It gets wet and stays wet and some holds can be very dirty, I've even stuck my hand in a birds nest while climbing the first bolted line on the shaded side! Still a very fun local place to go if you live near by or are driving though and need a quick outdoor fix.
