Fun route with variation. Start at the base for the first 5-10 feet on easy low-angle holds to eventually gain the face. Climb the right side of the face through the crack and continue to the small overhang. Pull the "roof" and end up on top. This route stays on the right side of the face throughout.


This route starts as a low-angle scramble for a few feet to gain the face. From the bottom the wall looks like a pillar. Climb to the top, top out, then hike back down to the base.

I am not sure who posted this route; however, climbing at Rising Park in Lancaster, OH on Mount Pleasant is OFF LIMITS! Many of us local climbers here have been working for over 12 years to get bouldering permitted at the local parks. Until last year we have been consistently denied. However, bouldering is now permitted at Keller Kirn Nature Park off North High Street also know as Flat Rocks by locals. This area offers some good sandstone bouldering (at least 40 plus established problems) but is also OFF LIMITS to roped climbing. Areas of the park over 20 feet in height are also off limits. No worries though, this leaves plenty of commiting high balls for the brave. Part of the agreement made with the Park Service was that we agree there is to be NO climbing at Rising Park whether roped or free climbing. Please show respect for the locals and their efforts by spreading the word as violations to the agreement may certainly pave the way for all climbing opportunity in and around Lancaster to be shut down once again PERMANENTLY.
