Description

Public land,hunting permitted during appropriate times of the year. Highly trafficked by the "young and unruly" so beware of broken glass and graffiti. If you can see past all of that,and scrub some moss you`ll find some fairly good sandstone, or some crumbly junk depending where you look. Most good boulders are within the first 100 yards of the entrance, although they don`t stop there. This was apparently once an established area, with a few top rope, or highballs depending who you are. Ive been trying to restablish the area without much luck. People camp there for free all the time, roadside parking is limited and make sure to be completely off the road. Please try to leave the area you`re in cleaner than when you arrived (not a hard task if you pick up atleast one piece of trash). Theres a popular hang out a little ways down the trail that people call the jumping rock where you can swim during the summer (trash gets heavy in this area, be forewarned). All in all potential to be a good little bouldering area right down the road from mcconnells mill, with a little help with clean up, both trails and problems.

  • **AS MENTIONED THIS IS A PREVIOUSLY ESTABLISHED AREA, IF ANY OF THE PROBLEMS I POST HAD ALREADY BEEN ESTABLISHED BY YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW, PLEASE LET ME KNOW AND I`LL EDIT THE INFORMATION ACCORDINGLY.***

Getting There

from the city i79 north to portersville, route 19 north towards mercer, drive about 8 miles crossing over 422 to "grant city", turn left onto grant city road. the road is very easy to miss, if you see a driving range/shack on the side of the road youve gone too far. At the end of the road theres a stop sign, stay left and youll see some parking on the side of the road, cross the bridge and theres more parking on the hill side. DO NOT PARK IN THE AWANA PARKING LOT.

To the best of my knowledge this is not public land. At least the initial chunk of it was listed for sale by a private land owner a few years back. There are many established boulders that are not listed here (and listed here) that were done many years back as this was the overflow valve we would visit when McConnells Mill was too crowded from the early 80's on.. The land owners are apparently patient between the amount of garbage generated by fisherman and the college crowd. There were a number of routes that were destroyed when the new bridge and road widening occured right near the parking near the V3 Entrance Exam boulkder but up the hill and back towards the road. Use caution back in here as for one season fisherman were being robbed at gun point though those perps were eventually caught it is visitied my a wide variety of "users" Mar 4, 2018
