B. Parking Lot Overhang Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Parking Lot Overhang
Steep, hard limestone climbing at its best. Definitely some of High Cliff's hardest and best climbing.
I'm not sure if any specific routes exist here, but a great place to set a toprope and play around.
Follow directions for West Side routes. Upon arriving at the barrier boulders, head north about 5-10 yds. to locate an access gully.

This is also a very cool boulder problem. When walking down the trail, Thanatopsis is located in a little cove. Start with a sit start and work you way straight up. Both walls are off (aka- no stemming). After pulling through the two small roofs. Either end after the big ledge or if you are on top-rope all the way up. I have never done it on top-rope because the boulder section is the best....[more] Browse More Classics in WI

I was here a couple days ago... This area has really loose rock- I broke off 3 holds. If you find the good stuff some really nice climbs. However, unfortunately, the middle bulge that looks like awesome climbing is very loose and mainly where I broke the three holds.
