East facing, usually shady, this is one of the better crags in the valley. It is downstream of the Big cliffs. Sandstone of course. These discriptions are culled from the slim 1987 volume titled A Climbers Guide To The Cliffs Of Logtown, Ohio. Under the FA column, LAC stands for Logtown Alpine Club, a tongue in cheek name coined by the main activists of the day, Shane Cobourn, Eric Vaughn, Sean Cobourn and/or John Varkonda. There are newer routes as well. I will let those pioneers report them.
Please note, all the protection notes will say "trad". Since most of the early activists left the area, many of the climbs have been retro-bolted to suit the tastes and style of a new generation. While I could honestly care less about the bolts, it should be remembered that the routes listed here were all done without them, and no sticky rubber or that white powdery stuff neither....damn young whippersnappers.

Getting There 

Short approach. Cross the street from the parking area, crest the hill and there you are.

Climb the corner, pull the roof to ledge. Finish on Direct or Indirect. Named after a pulp porno novel found on ledge on FA. Yes, it was about "doing" dogs. Pretty funny stuff when you are 15....[more]   Browse More Classics in Ohio
