Park Rules state climbing is not allowed MORE INFO >>>


The area is a large, sandstone, woodded bluff that rises above the land around it. The base of the climbs are wooded. Trails abound and locals frequently hike in this area, so please be respectful, especially with trash. The rock quality is currently a bit sandy and brittle due to little climbing activity.

Getting There 

Rising Park is located at the corner of North High Street and Granville Pike (where North High turns 90 degrees east). The approach from the parking lot to the base of the climbs is 10 minutes. Park in the first parking area by the tennis courts. There is a wide trail across from the parking lot that will take you to the top of the cliffs. From there, you can go below and scope out routes to set up topropes on.

Poaching in the Sun 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  OH : Rising Park : Black Wall
Fun route with variation. Start at the base for the first 5-10 feet on easy low-angle holds to eventually gain the face. Climb the right side of the face through the crack and continue to the small overhang. Pull the "roof" and end up on top. This route stays on the right side of the face throughout....[more]   Browse More Classics in OH
