Rock Climb the Right Arete at Amusement Wall (Mad River Gorge)


Added by Katie Johnstone

Lead climbing in Ohio? Yes, that is correct! This climb is a perfect warmup route and great for those learning to lead outdoors!

Getting to Amusement Wall
From the parking lot walk toward the kiosk. Here the trail begins. You will go down a rocky slop and then will want to turn right once the trail meets with another trail that run parallel to the river. Continue on this path for about 5 minutes and then you will see a small trail to the right that leads you to amusement wall.

Right Arete Climb - 5.7 (Name coming soon)

  • This climb is the farthest climb to the right at Amusement wall.
  • Somewhat challenging start to fun climbing.
  • If you stay farther to the left you will find better holds. The holds to the right are smaller and a bit more difficult.
  • You will need a total of 4 quickdraws - 2 for the bolts, 2 for the anchors.
