Description

A nice area to boulder in southern Illinois since it is almost always empty despite having awesome quality sandstone routes 8 to 20 feet high. Some boulder routes here are genuine southern Illinois classics! The bluff is west facing above the mississippi river valley so expect morning shade and evening sun. Also lake Kinkaid is not far from the graveyard and offers deep water soloing as well as swimming and fishing.

Getting There

3 miles north of HWY 149 off Route 3. If coming from the south head right onto Crain Rd and drive behind the church on your right. Be respectful and you may want to refrain from climbing when church is in service. Walk up to the bluffline and follow to the right. Have fun!
