Comments: Phenom line. A sit down from the left, and a long sit down from the right could probably be done as well for even more fun.

As it is, I think it's starts naturally from the sidepull crimp from a stand. Pretty rad. Could use a bit more brushing along the rail at the lip. I was on a night session on it tonight, and had a blast. I'll have to go back to stick that last move! JWilliams

PS- At least two pads are preferable. Three might be the best with a sloping hillside just off the landing.

Comments: Probably V3 up the slopey arete: Friction Addiction. Did this last Sunday; super fun! JW

Start with good feet on the river corner (as you walk up from the parking lot, this is on the front right corner of the boulder) and reach left to a good undercling. Work your way up and left with low smears and a sloping rail for your right hand to the apex of the rail, and mantle over to glory. A classic V3. There is a flat rock underneath the landing, and so two pads may be helpful: one on this... more >>

Comments: Amazingly, there's almost no feet for many of these problems... It's an amazing area though, not to mention visually beautiful on its own right.

Comments: I think this is only 11a. I think that the jug 3 feet from the third bolt is on the route, and with that hold on, it's only 11a. If you take that hold off, you could make it a lot harder, but with some good technique, it really isn't all that bad. My partner and I onsited it.

Comments: Very good, very hard, and very height dependent. It will be very difficult if you are shorter than 6 feet, unless you see something that I don't. JW

Comments: Ow! That left hand gaston hurts!

I couldn't get the first two moves off the ground, but did the rest from a match on the incut. Damn long legs and damn sitstarts.

Stellar line. Can't wait to get back.

Comments: Unclear exactly what the "rules" on this v7 are, after the "triangle on the arete" (which demarks the point at which the arete can be used). I've heard that you are supposed to stay left on the face all the way to the lip. I think that this may be v7. Otherwise, using the arete to climb to the top comes in closer to Minnesota v5/V6.

Comments: Anybody know where the "Outlet Boulder" with the classic V5/V6 sloping layback boulder problem is located? I walked all over Sylvan without happening upon it. I don't see it it listed.

Rockclimbing.com has it listed but locates it "between the outlets" which means nothing to me. Thanks! JW

Comments: On Monday they did 2:46 something

two minutes better than their attempt last week. At that pace, it's pretty tough to improve on.

Comments: Would be much much better if it was more than one hard move.

Nonetheless, I've never seen anyone else on it. One V4 short section followed by 5.9 climbing.

C'mon, this is RED WING. Brush of the holds with your fingers and keep going. ;)

Comments: I would grade this harder than the 11s on this cliff. The crimps are very small and polished, esp. with humidity. And while the sole hard move on this climb is harder than the 11s, you're right in that it is not at all sustained.

Nonetheless, very fun. 11d in my opinion.

Comments: There's a rumor that a foothold broke off this route, making it more difficult for shorter folks. It still goes at 12c.

A totally underappreciated route. One new quick-clip at the top for lowering to go with the hook and other biner.
