This area is completely unheard of! Mainly due to the fact it is hidden in central IL. With that said this is a decent bouldering area if you're bored of climbing indoors and looking to climb nothing over a v3.

You have to park across from Lehigh Park in a parking lot.

Cross the road and continue towards the outdoor band stand. Go past the band stand towards the back left corner of the park.There you should stumble upon a trail. Follow that trail until it starts to go downhill.

Take the second trail on your left (this is a downhill mtb course so watch out!), it should take a sharp left and then open up into a a clearer area. Continue along the downhill course and look to your left.

To your left you should see nice cliffs and 4-7ft tall boulders. Look all around we are finding new boulders every time we go out there.

Getting There 

From Oglesby:
Drive east of Walnut St and you should see it on your left once you get outside the main town area.
