True Adventures trip to Southern Illinois last weekend. Eight people’s worth of fun and awesomeness. Miranda led the trip and did a fabulous job as always. It’s maybe six hours south of Chicago, and totally worth the drive. Hundreds of sport climbs and trad climbs. All in a gorgeous canyon, terrific hiking, a pretty waterfall, and free camping. Which is very cool. Make sure you bring your own water for camping as there isn’t any there, aside from the little creek if you’d like to filter your own. They’ve recently put up some more signs to make it much easier to find the camping. Climbs range from 5.6 to 5.13. So happy. Such a great, relaxing, excellent climbing spot and place to experience nature. Have any questions about where are the best spots to climb? Feel free to email me. I can give some pointers on how to get into the canyon and where to go once you’re in.
