About Malabar Rocks:

There is a collection of sandstone boulders behind the pleasant valley lutheran church on pleasant valley rd. This is out by the malabar farm near Mansfield Ohio. These rocks get up to around 20 feet in height. They have a number of good looking features. I am not sure of the quality of the rock, but it looks well worth climbing if you are in the area. Bouldering only, but seems like a decent amount. Let me know if this turns out to be anything. You'll need to take a wire brush to clean up, but there might be something worthwhile. I will post a couple of photos
Nearest town or city: Mansfield
Directions: from inter of 13 and 71 take E Hanley rd East. Turn right at the stop sign in little washington onto Hastings. Bear left at the Y onto Pleasant Valley rd. Continue a few miles and you will see a small church right before an oil field on your left. Walk up behind the church and you can't miss the rocks. They are about 100 ft from the road.
