Comments: (!) Block used for right side of anchors has fallen into the chimney and multiple blocks have hit the ground. There could still be loose rock, please do not climb.

Comments: There are two additional bolted mixed/dry routes over the pond that are worth mentioning:

  • Over the center is a M7(?) route that follows a good seem the whole way up. First bolt is above where the ice forms, so either protect with screw or courtesy clip.

  • To the left of the last route is a M8(?) that follows a series of fun, and reachy moves. Same thing with first bolt as last route.

Both routes are equipped with steel clip style hooks on the chains. It is acceptable to TR directly off these.... more >>

Comments: what is the bolted route in the corner?

Comments: The main flow area is one of the only areas that get natural ice somewhat reliably. The ice here goes at about WI4 when not picked out.

This area is located right in front of a couple permanent benches.

There are bolts up above most of the popular lines.

Comments: There's a massive log on the right side of this route now. There's some other climbs that are a little better nearby too. Just to the climber's left of Danger Blanket is a really cool formation, it is separated by an arĂȘte. We have climbed some other stuff further out too.

Comments: As of 01/29/13 this area was in better than anything else and super sticky!

There was swarms of people there with gardening equipment looking for the medallion - made for some interesting conversation.

I'll head back soon and grab some photos.

Comments: Route was equipped with 10 bolts, thanks James. Route is very well protected.

There's two steel clip style anchor chains. It is acceptable to TR directly through these.

Hard moves to gain fist ledge without ice. Easy cruisin' after that. Excellent introductory mixed/dry lead.

Comments: If you're looking for food, try Jan & Gary's country dining. Priced right and the breakfast portions have been great each visit. Lunch stuff is decent too.

Comments: Ice has been decent lately - was just there Wednesday and there was plenty to go around. Pretty picked out, but Jeff said he was turning the farming setup on again tonight.

Comments: what are the two bolted routes in the gully to the right, are they variations of waves? is tsunami a second or first pitch variation?

Comments: Anchor is still bad all these years later. Probably not worth replacing as this is one dirty climb (even for red wing standards). Avoid.

Comments: I was running out of 10s... so i tried to onsight this. It was muddy and overrun with ferns. Did just enough cleaning to finish the route, good luck to the next person.

Anchors were also buried under a pile of sticks, cleared most of them away.
