Description 

Dolomedes wall is shaded all day and damp. There is knobs, cracks, and a few crimps. Wall needs a lot of cleaning and chalk balling to climb effectively. There is so much potential in these walls for established climbing and bolting some of the overhangs for sport climbing. I am on vacation and don't have the time that this place deserve to put into it right now. It is a 2 wall crag. Could be multi pitched with trad gear and tree anchoring. There is a over hanging east facing wall on the east side of the crag that has some very promising climbs that NEED to be opened up. Wall gets it's name from the two Dolomedes tenebrosus (fishing spider) that was seen on the wall.

Getting There 

Park at the dirt lot off to the north side of Big Pine Rd across from the wooden sign of Hocking Hills State Park climbing and rappelling area.
Walk across the bridge until you come to a chicken foot in the trail and splits into three trials.
Take the far right one and head southWest for a 100yrds, and the first wall that you come to will be Dolomedes Wall.
