Located in Salina, KS. One overhung boulder at Indian Rock Park offers routes from v0 to v4ish. Located off of the trail to the base of the bluff, this boulder has been unknown and unclimbed until recently. Some cleaning has been done. Great stop from weary I-70 travelers, best chunk of rock in Kansas.

Getting There 

pretty easy to find in Salina. Just follow main trails in park and you're golden.

At least be willing to use complete sentences when giving location discriptions. Is there more than one park in Salina? Where is the park located?

I checked this place out. The current instructions suffice just fine- no worries! I have some great photos to post when I get a minute. A worthwhile stop if you are in the area. If you live locally, this rock has some solid problems to keep you entertained for a bit.

To find the boulder, start at the parking area at the northwest corner of the park, just off of Indiana Ave. near Gypsum Ave. Take the trail directly in front of the parking, heading down hill and into the trees. You'll see the boulder across the pond. Go left or right around the pound to reach it.

We found the boulder to be pretty dirty and chossy. I was pulling off quite a bit of rock and some of the holds were really slimy from runoff. That being said, the problem that starts in the back right of the cave and climbs straight out is really fun, with the topout being the crux at V5/6. Overall, some really cool lines, it's just unfortunate that the rock quality is subpar. Maybe if it got more traffic it would clean up, but the rock seems to be sandstone conglomerate, and the standstone part isn't exactly bullet.
