About Mazinaw Rock:

This geological formation is two miles in length of a "Vertical Thrust Fault." The east side went up 350 feet and the west side went down 350 feet. "The rock is metamorphosed granite, intruded by many black dykes. The dykes trend diagonally up and left, and give rise to planes of weakness producing slabs, ramps, and cracks. The quality of the rock varies from good on the more popular routes to incredibly bad on the less frequented routes." From "A Guide to Rock Climbs at Bon Echo", Adcock and Brown, 2003. The black rock is extremely crumbly and should not be used for placing pro.
