Description

Pounds Lake is known as Southern Illinois most obscure bouldering area. Just outside of Pounds Hollow, several boulders hold quality problems of all grades. The problems are extremely fun, but receive little traffic, so be prepared to bring a brush. Have fun.

Getting There

From Harrisburg it is 15 miles on Route 34 North. There are signs for Pounds Hollow. Turn East on Karber's Ridge Road and follow it for 9 miles to the recreation area entrance. As you enter the area, follow the one-way road to the right. At .6 miles, park at the pull-off on the right. Walk straight down the hill to the edge of the lake. Continue walking right around the cove following the trail at the lakes edge. After a short hike you will come to a cement spillway. From there, cut straight up the hill toward the rock.
