Summary

Density of shorter, medium strength sandstone, high quality climbs. slabby finishes a hallmark of the area.

Description

Most anchors are rings or chains. It is important to note the number of QDs listed for each route and then assume 2 more will be needed for the anchor.

Approach

West on 45 from Harrisburg, IL, keep on straight through Carrier Mills. Left on Ozark Road. After a sharp turn in the road just past Zion Church Cemetery, you will pass Trigg Tower Road on the right (do not turn on trigg tower road). Take a Right turn onto the gravel road just before the first farmhouse on the right. keep on this road for a few miles and you will find a parking area, further down there are parking options on various pull offs on the side of the road.

Where to stay

Camping around parking area for the crag.

History

Much information listed here can be found in Vertical Heartland, A Rock Climber's Guide to Southern Illinois (3rd Ed) by Eric Ulner. However, that book is grossly out of date and there are many new climbs only kept track of by the local climbers.
