Description

Quite secluded from the main populace.. Rock here is Berea Sandstone, (same rock at Elyria).

Getting There

South of 82, East of 21. Food is available at the supermarket on 82.
The first parking area is downstream from the dam and provides access to a fewhighball problems. Further south on the park drive is another large parking area with families, swing sets, and pavilions. The approach here isn't as straight forward yet it is organized.

These are the names that I have been told were the names I am sorry if I offended anyone. I never intended to say that I climbed these first. Just putting up some routes I know of for people in the area to get excited about climbing. If you would like me to change any names I would be happy to. Jan 9, 2010
Driving from MN to MD June 8-9. This distance is a good rest spot for me (driving solo with kids). Any beta on camping in the area and where to park to find boulders? May 29, 2013

The directions to the boulders were a bit unclear, it said walking is how you get there. is there anyone that can give a better explanation? May 30, 2017
Can anyone comment on the current legal status and environment for bouldering here? If we might get kicked out for it, thats fine. We are just worried they might try to take gear away. Are there multiple groups out bouldering on nice days without issue? Jul 11, 2017
John-  
Brandt H,

Climbing is much more common and mainstream than in prior years and as far as I am aware from the appropriate connections I still have, there's not a common rule on climbing throughout Ohio. So go to Chippewa solo or with your entourage, climb in the rain or in the sun, and there's a less chance to be heckled than in prior years by law enforcement.

Tom, PM me and I can provide you a better explanation. Jul 11, 2017
I dont know if any of you guys have been there recently but around mid November Brecksville experienced this tornado (as the news people put it) esque storm, and there are lots of fallen trees in the area. It really doesn't affect the climbing just the traversing around the area from spot to spot. Nov 27, 2017
Might be driving by here to visit some family. Any beta for someone coming here solo? Recommended problems to try up to V5-6? Mar 1, 2018
