Quite secluded from the main populace.. Rock here is Berea Sandstone, (same rock at Elyria).

Getting There 

South of 82, East of 21. Food is available at the supermarket on 82.
The first parking area is downstream from the dam and provides access to a fewhighball problems. Further south on the park drive is another large parking area with families, swing sets, and pavilions. The approach here isn't as straight forward yet it is organized.

Climbing Season

For the All Locations area.

These are the names that I have been told were the names I am sorry if I offended anyone. I never intended to say that I climbed these first. Just putting up some routes I know of for people in the area to get excited about climbing. If you would like me to change any names I would be happy to.

Driving from MN to MD June 8-9. This distance is a good rest spot for me (driving solo with kids). Any beta on camping in the area and where to park to find boulders?
