East facing crag about 30-50 feet high. Nice views of the Slippery Rock Creek and other tourists going about their business. Lots of shade from the trees can keep sections of the rock damp for a while after rain.
Located across the river from the mill. Drive over the covered bridge and make a quick right onto the dirt Rim Road. Drive a 1/4 mile or so and park at the picnic tables with the kiosk noting the climbing area below. Walk 40 feet to the top of the cliff. Either walk/scramble to the base or rappel in.
