Comments: i don't know when you climbed this, but I know several people got this last fall. Other routes that have been climbed are the obvious cracks on the far left side of the amphitheater. Also, a fun slopey problem is almost in the middle of the amphitheater. It starts on a large block, and is very hard to place pads.. we had a couple on the block and a couple down below.

Comments: do you need gear for the dihedral, or is it completely bolted?

Comments: Did you mean 10 feet to the left of PH balance? if so, this is a super sweet route, for sure. Crazy balance required. if you did mean to the right i've never been on it...

Comments: I got this route last friday. I'll call it 'Liber Abaci,' and call it V9. I climbed more or less straight up the face, so a little to the right of the line in the beta picture. Stand start, horrible feet, and super crazy crimps. I will post some pics asap.

Comments: I finally climbed this yesterday. I will call it 'Continuum Hypothesis.' If I had to give it a grade, it would be V6. I think it is a very fun problem.

Squat/Stand start on the triangular crimps and the pinch on the curving arch. Use desperate feet to get you to some sharp crimps out left. Work up to the cool diagonal crimps then work your way right to a very enjoyable top-out. Overall, a route whose crux is at the beginning-requiring you to balance your technique with power. Once the first c... more >>

Comments: Bolting has been small talk with high cliff climbers for several years. No one has really stepped up to make the next move.

Generally, the rock is very chossy and shallow, this makes most people hesitant of the bolts. Two bolts were at high cliff a long time ago, but they have since been removed (also a long time ago) because of the above reason.

I personally think the reserve area would be a perfect place to bolt... but that's just me.

Comments: Are you talking about this specific route? If you are... I've only been on it once for about 20 minutes. You most definitely need a rope for this one. Bouldering this would just be absurd from my point of view... Foxx Canyon has lots to offer though for bouldering...

Comments: I've heard there is some pretty hard bouldering on the south side of Wolf Lake/ North side of the mountain (I forgot the name...). Does anyone have any info on the climbs?

Comments: Has anyone tried the steep face just left this route. It looks like a sketchy landing because a slab comes in from the far left, but it looks like it could go...?

Comments: Thanks for all the work at the hollow Jay! All the new routes are awesome. As a side note, did you hear about the Vertical Stronghold "reunion" that is going to be held at wheelers the weekend of aug 2,3, and 4 or so?


Location: WI : High Cliff State Park : North Side : Pavilion Block Bouldering : The Overhang (V5-6)
By: Peter Dodge When: Jun 26, 2008

Comments: I think there can be two separate routes that take you through the roof in the cave. One route goes the three finger pocket after the main ledge (very big deadpoint) and then exits on the left side of the arete on the top-out section. The other goes right to a sharp flake and then works out to the right side of the arete on the top-out section. That may confuse things more, but that is what I got out of it. I put pictures up showing the two ways.

Comments: This route actually works through the other wall of the overhang.

Comments: I don't know if you were kidding, but I seriously think that would be a perfect route to bolt. I don't know really anything about bolting, but it seems like the face is very solid. Much more so than the usually chossy other areas of High Cliff. Anybody have some input?

Comments: This route saw two sends today. Mike Taylor and myself. A little bit wet, but an awesome route! I think it will become a classic at High cliff. Very nice flow to the route. We guessed maybe 5.11-/5.11. Not a route to be passed up.

Comments: I'm going to be taking a trip to Custer State Park in the summer. I'm looking for a guide book... any suggestions on which one to get and where to get it? I'm looking for a place with some easy routes because I'm going with the family... Which area has the best "easy" routes? Thanks.

Comments: I have made a guide for a lot of the climbing at High Cliff. It isn't anything major, but it will give you a lot of the popular areas and routes. E-mail me if you would like a copy and I will send one to you.

Comments: I got on this route the past weekend. It is a great route. It was SO cold though... which means no send. It was the coldest weather I ever endured climbing--no warmer than 15 degrees. Expect a lot of new routes from this entire wall. It is too bad this area hasn't been found earlier (or has it...). Great routes and very good quality rock.

Comments: It all goes back to the first time I climbed the route. It took me four times to do the crux move-the dead point. The move is awesome, none the less, and is a great feeling sticking it. I will also add that the one move is a lot harder than the 11- grade, but because the entire route is so short it is hard to call it anything higher.

Comments: I would like to see these retro bolted. As of right now with the run outs, sketchy bolts and no top anchors, these routes are way to intimidating for me.
