Description

Sunny sandstone top roping in the lower peninsula of Michigan right off of the Grand River. The cliff is 40 feet tall offering very bouldery, challenging climbs and problems. Classic climbs/problems included:

Chips: 5.7
Doug's Roof: 5.10
Rocket Man: 5:10
Ragged Edge: 5.12

V1 The Tooth
V3 Despondency
V3 The Trick
V5 Ballerina
V6 Enigma

The cliff faces south and receives sun most of the day with the majority of wind blocked as well. It exists in a Oak Park managed by the city of Grand Ledge which approved continued climbing at the park 20 years ago.  Fitzgerald Park, across the river, does not allow climbing at any time for any reason and was part of the concession the climbing community accepted for continued access at Oak Park.

Getting There

Find Grand Ledge, Michigan (use Map Quest or Google). Then head through downtown along Bridge St. Once you cross the bridge, hang a left on the first street. You will drive though a subdivision until you dead end at Oak Park. The approach to the cliff is obvious- simply hike down towards the river via trails that take you down to where the cliff breaks down on both sides.
