Access Issue: Quincy Bluff and Wetland Reserve and at least parts of Rattlesnake Mound are State Natural Areas and therefore closed to climbing. Please respect this ban. William Kelly notes that this ban does not apply to Owens Rock because Owens is a part of Leola Marsh Wildlife Area. Details


Start sitting with right hand on undercling/rail and left hand on a solid roundish crimp out to the left. Put feet anywhere below the rail, pull up, and swing/lunge up to a sweet left hand crimp. Reposition feet and bump right hand up rail and/or to good hold above the rail (or any of the ok but not as good holds). Find a good foot and have fun the rest of the way up.

This start has probably been done before but I thought that it was a natural and fun way to start. It adds a couple of good moves and some difficulty to a great warm up route, so I thought it deserved to be listed separately. You can sit start the left or right side of the face of the boulder too, but those starts don't add much to the routes. This center one definitely does and it is really the only good way to sit start in the center of the boulder.


Center of the house boulder.
