Sunny sandstone top roping and bouldering crag in the lower peninsula of Michigan right on the Grand River. The cliff is 40 feet tall and offers very bouldery, challenging climbs and problems. Classic climbs/problems include:
Black Buttress: 5.9
Doug's Roof: 5.10
Rocket Man: 5:10
Ragged Edge: 5.12
V1 The Tooth
V3 The Trick
The cliff faces south and receives sun most of the day with the majority of wind blocked as well. It exists in Oak Park, which is managed by the city of Grand Ledge. While the rock quality is pretty good on established classics, other areas can be quite chossy, so be careful.
Unique Rules to Grand Ledge:
(1) No lead climbing.
(2) Must place carpet below your anchors to protect cliff from erosion. You will see how soft the rock is and all the marking from webbing and rope.
(3) No Rappelling.
