Description

Located inside Hoosier National Forest, most of Hemlock Cliffs is open to climbing. It's mentioned online that most of the rock is dirty or choss, but there are boulders and small walls scattered throughout Hoosier National Forest to be found.

If you are in the area, please document it! I'm hoping that listing this area will make Indiana a little less barren.

It's legal, but with restrictions. Folks have been climbing there for years. Developing is not allowed, there are archeological sites within Hemlock that are not disclosed to the public, and if you disturb them they can fine you or close the area. This is what happened at Military wall in the Red. There is better climbing nearby. Have fun but tread lightly Nov 15, 2017

Legal. It's the hoosier national forest. There is better illegal climbing than legal in the state. Since properties owned by the state don't allow climbing. I didn't wanna post a place to climb if it's illegal. I just wanted to find a belay for it. A trad rack would be good, mine is incomplete. Jun 10, 2017

There is good illegal state owned rock in the area. I'll share my projects. Hit me up, I've been rope soloing, need a belay. Work most weekends. Jun 2, 2017
