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?

I have no idea if it's still open. Isn't this a classic John Gill traverse from the 60's?

Hey guys, I am happy to let you know that Giant City State Park is still open to climbing and will continue to be for a long time to come.
