Here's a map based loosely off the map in the Ulner guide, but done from memory. Red ATCs represent accessible anchors for rap points, brown paths over the cliff represent places I know are safe to scramble in. Blue is the creek bed, and brown are the cut across paths.

Coming from the south, you can access Glen St Falls Road from Pope Co Road 2260. However, it will require an off-road vehicle.
In Illinois there are 3 guide books for the southern portion of the state. The first is Eric Ulner's book Vertical Heartland.
His guide is a good representation of the legal climbing destinations in the state and primarily focus on sport and traditional climbing.
The second is Matt Bliss's book Sandstone Warrior.
His guide beautifully lays out the majority of the bouldering found in S.I. and includes quality color photos to aid in your boulder problem deciphering. These two guides provide you with all the necessary tools to navigate our local crags. Pick them up and go enjoy the climbing that Illinois has to offer.
