Comments: Next time you come to Red Wing (or Taylors for that matter) don't forget to bring a hammock and 3 or 4 ropes. That way you can set up a few 2 hour top-ropes for all of you friends to get their climbing skills dialed in while they run laps on it. Disregard anyone that asks multiple times to get on the route. I mean hey, you have a hammock and a TR setup, why should you have to move on? Get comfy.

Comments: Not 5.6. I backed down on this climb for not having any big gear. It was really awkward and seemed really committing without some big cams.

Comments: ^^^^^^^^ If one does the 5.8 "lightning" crack/variation finish and then up the easy, yet runout ridge, there is a set of anchors once you top out, continue on flat territory for another 10ft and there they are. Then rap off these too. Only 1 rope is needed. scramble up and over and there is another 1 rope rap. however this will put you on the opposite side of the conn diagonal, so a little bit of walking is needed to get back to the start of the route...

Comments: and i stand corrected. i just did this on a recent trip out to the hills to wind down the day. i thought i remember it being easy 9 but 9+ it is. felt really hard cranking on very small pockets.

Comments: a great route to set up a TR after leading tower of teeth or the guardian face. pg-13 if you're relying on the pitons from the 80s. they're rusted and seized up.

Comments: This route is very easy to identify. Walk towards Middle Earth and hang a left at Duet (very tall obvious spire in the picture). Walk along the base of the wall past 2 or 3 bolted routes. You should scramble up a few feet between the wall and a boulder. There is a bolt at ground level to protect the traverse onto the route.

Comments: it's really hard to pic it out, but, there is a climber on P3 and it really puts this climb in perspective.

Comments: do yourself a favor and DO NOT use any holds on either side of the slab (not even the good right hand side pull) and get your slab skills dialed in. V1+.

Comments: one move wonder down low makes for the technically crux of the climb. I could see people making this harder than 5.7. mental crux up top on the slab the poorly protects and in reality is quite run out although if you did fall it would be back to the ledge. i could also see new leaders hesitate at that point. either way it's a fun and honest 5.7.

Comments: pulling the roof is the distinct crux and if you don't have any jamming abilities and try to layback the slopy/greasy corners of the crack it can go from 5.8 to 5.hard quick. I made a couple laps on TR and from the first to the last time I got it quickly dialed in and 5.8 did seem very appropriate. Fun route and super easy TR set up. I slung a tree and used a #2 bd c4 right by the lip of the top out.
