You must obtain a permit to climb with a rope system. Contact Mike Barnhart 216 351 6300, Ext. 264, with the Cleveland Metro Parks system. You can visit the Cleveland Zoo and get things handled their as well, but don't expect same day service. You must have proof of 300,000 USD personal liability insurance (home owners or renters) if you plan on using a rope system to be safe in the presence of our Honorable Rangers.

Sun. Super secluded from hikers, rangers and screaming kids. The occasional climber mass can be found here .. since it is the ~hottest new thing. The area was first "discovered" late 1996/1997..
To get to Cripple Creek .. continue walking further south past Finger Tips Boulder .. pick up the main trail along the cliff line and walk until you're there. The cairns may be there, they may not. These are the only real climbable boulders in this region .. there are a few older TR's along the cliff on the walk out ..
