Getting There 

The Sinnissippi Grand Traverse is located within Sinnissippi Park, on the east side of Sterling. Illinois Rte 2, Follow sign at stoplights at Freeport Road. Once inside park gate, make two left-hand turns to park at 5 stall parking lot (left side)near road bridge. Take paved path under bridge and stay right to base of cliff. This is also the disc golf basket #23. The 160', 8" band of white chert will be readily apparent.

Sinnissippi Park Grand Traverse 

This is a 160', 8" band of white chert running 6'- 10' above the ground, on a sunny south-facing cliff of chossy limestone. This is mostly a traverse. Handholds are on the shelf the chert lies on. Footholds are wherever one finds them. Bouldering and climbing may become safer as the wall loses it's chossiness.
