Description Suggest change

The lower peninsula lacks any natural rock-climbing areas with the exception of Oak Park in Grand Ledge, Michigan.  There is a nice fountain park that freezes in the winter making an ideal practice ground and also a single boulder in Lake Huron with a couple lines.  The remainder of non-quarry climbs are all found in Oak Park.  The area was first climbed in the late 1940s and continues to be popular among locals today.

Getting There Suggest change

First right below the bridge.
