I haven’t seen such a tall wall in Ohio. Someone bolted three routes there already. I figure one could probably bolt at least 10 routes. This area has a lot of potential. Aug 23, 2018

Climbing is officially allowed at Mollies Rock and wild life areas in general. However, it appears that restrictions are in the workings. We will need to advocate to keep climbing open. More to come. But for now, get out and climb at these places. Nov 26, 2018
If you're looking for a rainy or snowy day option to get outside. This crag is a good bet. Steep enough to keep you dry in almost all conditions. Dec 20, 2018
