Description

The Big Cliffs are on private property. Climbing has been going on here for decades, so past practice is used here. There are a few trad routes mixed in with mostly bolted routes. Older bolts have mostly been replaced as of 2018; as always use your own judgement when considering a route. Most of the bolted lines climb between drill marks from the old sandstone quarry. Top roping can be challenging here due to the rotten top portion of the cliff which leads to better rock below. If you do Top Rope or Rappel here, be very cautious of the loose rock at the top section of the cliffs. There is a 3 bolt rappel station on top of The Pit that is a good place to practice rappelling.

It’s best not to set up a Top Rope from the top of the cliff on most of the climbs. If possible, one person leads the route, then sets up a top rope by attaching their gear to the permanent anchors. If you must set up the Top Rope from the top of the cliff, please be careful and try not to knock down loose rocks.

Most of the anchors at Logtown have permanent steel carabiners attached; please attach your own gear to the anchors for Top Roping. The last climber to climb the route can then either lower off(recommended) or rappel off the permanent steel carabiners and clean the route. These anchors are costly and take time to replace, please do not Top Rope directly off the permanent anchors.

Getting There

Big Cliffs: From the Parking Lot, face the bike trail and locate the brown and white climber sign. Walk to this sign and up some stone stairs to the bike trail (the top of the stone steps are near the start of a fence). Turn left and walk to the end of the fence, passing faint climber signs painted on about every 6th post. A few feet past the fence, turn right and follow the stone steps up to the Big Cliffs. Routes are numbered from left (1. Back Wall) to right (6. The Pit).
