Description 

Bouldering area, maybe some top roping. Two dozen+ problems ranging from 10 - 25 feet, V0 - V4+. Rock is mostly good sand stone, rough on the hands. Area gets a lot of sun. Several slightly overhanging problems, a few traverses and cracks.

Getting There 

From Marietta, OH, follow OH-26 N for approximately 7.5 miles, turn right onto Township Rd 19/Cowrun Rd for .8 miles, take a slight left onto Township Rd 94/Brooks Rd, this will be the second gravel road on your left after turning onto Cow Run Road. Continue on this road for .5 miles. Park at a small pull off on your left for the North County Trail. Take the trail for a quarter mile, until the trail starts a gradual climb veering right. Instead of turning, continue straight on an old logging road. Walk for 5 to 10 minutes, passing a stand of pine trees to your left, and a blue barrel. After the blue barrel, look down the hill to your left, seeing the first rock (Pacman). Continue around the hill from Pacman to find the remainder of the problems.
