Description

this area is very secluded and is labeled a nature preserve. the rock is sandstone. Between 10 and 15 bolted routes and a couple of trad of various grades. since posting this area i have been asked several times to take it down by people who have either bolted routes here or have route and grade info. I have gotten some cool info also. Nobody wants to share route or grade info so if you feel like naming or grading a climb here go ahead. I see nothing wrong with it unless the original climbers want to share info. i will say again that climbing is not allowed here so go at your own risk.

Getting There

routes are located in liberty park on liberty rd. the parking lot is across from post rd. which is a development. take the trail from the parking lot and go into the woods. take it about 10 minutes all the way back to a big cave (bolted and really cool) where the trail ends. hike left to find the bolted routes.

All of the climbs that I posted are unsent by anyone I know and can be re-named and graded by anyone who manages to send them. Most of the climbs here are hard. Some can be top roped by using a ladder to cross the gaps and get above the climbs. This place is usually wet, and a brush is needed to get rid of the ever-present lichen. I realized after posting the climbs that I put them in opposite order, from right to left since that is the direction of the approach. These routes were posted as a reference and rough guide to the area to let other climbers know what is here. Climbing here is probably illegal, so be quiet, respectful and if need be, plead ignorance. I have climbed here many times with no problems, but traffic at the park has increased over time, so problems may arise. The bolts are old but many appear to be in good shape. Some are rusted and may need to be replaced. Inspect them before you trust you life on them.

P.S. sorry for the sideways photos, I was switching them in my head and did not notice until later. Aug 22, 2017
I will take down the routes.

Sorry for the improper etiquette, I thought that someone may be interested in climbing here. Aug 22, 2017

This area was developed in the 1990's some routes even earlier before it was a park once the park took over the land climbing stopped.. Because the park said it was illegal... Many of the locals moved away and no one posted this area afterwards due to the fact that climbing is not permitted by the park.. If you bothered to do any homework before posting you would have already known this.. If you really want to help Ohio climbing contact your local access fund and fight for access.. Please do the right thing and take this down.. If the park starts busting people for climbing here you will have a much harder time getting the access fund to help - Plus the park will be less willing to grant access to Law-Breakers..

I'm asking you to think of the big picture. Your problem is not with the person(S) who established these routes it's with the Park.. However the park has the power to take your climbing gear and or give you a fine. Do the right thing... Climbing here is NOT permitted... Which is why no one wants to give or post route names, grades or beta.. It's called taking the high road.. Sep 10, 2017
