Description 

In Town, Easy Drive-In Access. Two main boulders to climb. Most problems have not been well established. It's pretty much open at this point. Decent midwest limestone climbing.

The local police will allow you to drive (no treading) to the boulders. Just do not (and I quote) "Tear up the grass." You'll have to park by the road if Wittenberg University's Rugby practice is in session.

Note, this "climbing area" has only been officially established over the past couple years. If anybody has made any first ascents, please update new problems.

This is a great spot with tons of bouldering projects. Most of them need to be cleaned but i have seen quite a few climbers out here recently so I'm sure there will be more routes being made and cleaned weekly.
