Description Suggest change

East facing sandstone, usually shady. It is downstream of the Big Cliffs.

Several new bolts and anchors were added in 2018. The top of the cliff is steep and is covered with debris; it’s best not to set up a Top Rope from the top of the cliff. If possible, one person leads the route, then sets up a top rope by attaching their gear to the permanent anchors. If you must set up the Top Rope from the top of the cliff, please be careful and try not to knock the debris down onto the climbs.

If you continue a short distance up the trail to the top there is a small park and swimming pool located there. 

Getting There Suggest change

From the Parking Lot, Walk back to where the bike path crosses Logtown Road. Take the MSG Joseph Daniel Harrison Memorial Trail to the cliffs. There is a brown and white climber sign at the start of the trail, attached to a Kiosk shared by the Ohio Climber’s Coalition and Center Township Tourism Bureau.
