Jackson Falls

Although it is relatively unknown through the US, Jackson Falls is Southern Illinois finest sport climbing area and one of the Midwest hot spots.

The place gets busy on the weekend, but is almost empty during weekdays, proving that almost no climbers choose Jackson as a destination during road trips.

Well they should...
The Falls' sandstone is really featured and offers slopers, pockets, crimps and jugs. The climbs average 60 feet of height and a lot of them are on free standing towers, offering nice exposure.

Lat./Lon. : 37.498699, -88.677002
