Description 

The "Angel Wall" is a 25/30-ft vertical basalt wall on 3rd Street in Duluth with three bolts at the top for setting up top-ropes.

Getting There 

Located on the northwest side of 3rd Street, very close to Piedmont Ave. You can drive there and parallel park right next to the wall.

A little ways to the left of the wall there is a path that's been trampled through the underbrush that leads up to the bolts where you can set up an anchor. It's a little unpleasant getting up there- there are brambles growing everywhere and garbage, including broken glass, on the ground.

Setting up a top-rope anchor at the top would be spooky without any pro, so bringing along a daisy chain is recommended.

Duluth guidebooks say there are "several variations" which go up the Angel Wall on 3rd Street, but I was only able to find one plausible line. It starts on the right-hand side, on the tufa bordering the small dihedral corner, and goes straight up the face on small slippery crimps.I don't want to spoil the fun for the adventurous Duluth-er trying to decipher this puzzling route, but getting a very high foot on the tufa is one way to get to the better holds higher on the wall.I have never seen a ...[more]   Browse More Classics in MN
