Description

Quincy is a cool little area with high quality problems. There isn't a lot of problems here, but what's there is classic and worth the trip. Established by Paul Jones, The Main boulder is the big attraction, but other fun climbs can be found in the area.
No climbing is allowed in this nature preserve. Details
Quincy and at least parts of rattlesnake are state natural areas and thus closes to climbing. Please respect the ban. Details

A local resident stated there are black bears around Quincy bluff. Climbing still prohibited due to being a state nature area. Aug 24, 2015

It looks like the DNR and the Nature Conservancy now are joint owners of Quincy Preserve. It's now got State Natural Area designation and no climbing is allowed still. Sep 24, 2011
