My son and I are going to be passing through the midwest this July on our quest to climb in all 50 states... Can anyone recommend the best place to go in Indiana for a day of climbing? Preferably leading (sport or trad), but bouldering or top-roping would be ok, too. Jan 13, 2017

As far as I know, the only two places to climb in Indiana are Muscatatuck Park and Unlikely Wall. If you're looking for bouldering go to Muscatatuck, if you're looking for sport/top rope go to Unlikely! Jan 19, 2017

There is much more climbing in this state than one would expect, but it tends to be incredibly loose, very short, and have horrible access (I've been threatened with guns by hick landowners). If you're trying to climb in all 50 states, I would stick to Muscatatuck or Unlikely. Any of the other areas simply aren't worth the effort. Mar 4, 2017

Are there any guides for Muscatatuck? Or even photos with route names? May 19, 2018

As far as I know, there are no official guidebooks but the bouldering area is pretty compact and I've been trying to add more photos and descriptions of the problems to make the area more accessible. I only started updating the area last month though so if you check back now, it'll hopefully be a little clearer than in the past! Mar 6, 2019
