Description Suggest change

PLEASE TAKE NOTE:  Climbing is prohibited at the present time.   We hope this will change in the near future.  We will post on this site when crag is open for climbing.  

Shaded hillside. Easy access(1/4 to 1/2 mile hike). Sandstone rock. Hand full of people use the routes regularly. Enough room to spread out and not be too crowded.

Getting There Suggest change

Access trail is 1 1/3 miles north of the Hannibal/ New Martinsville bridge that crosses the Ohio river. Traveling north from the bridge on State route 7 you will come to a place where a hollow begins at route 7 and the hillside parts. There is a gravel driveway that proceeds up the hollow with a chain across the entrance. Just to the right of the chain is the trail head for Kiedaisch rock climbing. There is a wooden sign that designates the start of the trail. Follow the trail up the hillside for about a 1/4 of a mile until you see the rock face. Parking is on both sides of State route 7 near the trail head.
