2 boulders off to the right of the boulders

Description 

In Town, Easy Drive-In Access. Two main boulders to climb. Most problems have not been well established. It's pretty much open at this point. Decent midwest limestone climbing.

The local police will allow you to drive (no treading) to the boulders. Just do not (and I quote) "Tear up the grass." You'll have to park by the road if Wittenberg University's Rugby practice is in session.

Note, this "climbing area" has only been officially established over the past couple years. If anybody has made any first ascents, please update new problems.

Starts on the dry corner most climbers prefer on this rock. Lots of good holds and a fun climb. Start in the same holds as Dirty Blond (1a) and finishes a little right of Dirty Blonde (1a). Fun climb and another easy top off....[more]   Browse More Classics in OH

Drove through the park today and noticed a crew cleaning off the vegetation on the boulders.
