DescriptionNestled in the woods along the Kettle River, Banning State Park is located off I-35, Exit #195. Follow signs to the park.
The rock is all sandstone and quality ranges from bullet hard to choss-fest. Most of the climbs are found on cliffs and ledges and are best suited for bouldering (currently bolting is not allowed), though some of them are very high. Landings range from perfect to horrible.
Currently only specific parts of park are open. Permit required. Details
Banning State Park has only recently chosen to allow rock climbing (Summer 2014). Currently climbing is only allowed in designated areas. For the most up to date access information, ask at the park office where you can also obtain a (free) climbing permit which is required. Please be extra respectful of this area so climbing continues to be allowed and hopefully expanded to other areas. Keep cleaning to a minimum and be respectful of other park guest. Many of the climbs are along trails so please move pads (especially sketchy/unstable pads) or make sure guests know they can step on them when passing by.
