Description

Nestled 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

I would like to thank all of those who worked so hard to open up bouldering at Banning State Park (and the rest of Sandstone for that matter). You have done us all a great, great service. I made my first visit ever to the park yesterday and was blown away by the beauty of the area. As far as the bouldering, what can I say. The potential seems amazing. I urge all climbers to respect the newly established park rules, don't make a mess and enjoy this wonderful resource responsibly. I'm going back as soon and as often as I can. Sep 29, 2014
