You have to drive a little for good stuff.
The other poster is right Connelsville and Dunbar has tons of stuff. You can also drive out to Heshbon, Diltown, Windber, and areas around Jtown.

The Heshbon area is called ghost town. And despite what roclimb said about the area on his web page...

"Some of the rock is decent quality; some of the rock
is unclean. Overall some halfway decent rock if you live close. Not a major destination."

Of course he hasn't been there when wrote that.

Ghost town not only has the "best" rock in the northeast but also the greatest number of really classic boulder problems in the northeast (around 200+). And now that Matt Bosley and his crew have discovered the area it probably also has the greatest number of hard (over v10) problems in the state as well.

So Rob - it really feels good when you let your animosity and smug attitude guide you to put into writing stuff that future climbers can look back on and say with certainty - "you had no idea what you were talking about."


Oh - my point here is that Indiana is very close to the 2 best bouldering areas in the northeast. Best being defined as concentration and quality of problems.
