This is one of Illinois great sandstone traverses. I'm not sure of the status of this area but it used to be a hot spot for local climbers Adam Grawsoski and Adam Carrier to name a few and an ultimte challenge for visitors. Is Makanda Bluff still open? Feb 10, 2009
I have no idea if it's still open. Isn't this a classic John Gill traverse from the 60's? Nov 22, 2009
