Featured Route For Big Toe to Great Chimney
The route Grand Illusion with the lower 5.10b variation start shown.  It climbs up a crack not quit visible in the shadows lower right and scums over and past a point via a 5.10b mantle type move.  The upper crack and steep crux of Grand Illusion can be seen upper left in the photo as well but somewhat ill defined in this photo due to the angle of the shot and small shadows.

Grand Illusion 5.9+ 5c 17 VI E1 5a  WI : Devil's Lake : ... : Big Toe to Great Chimney

Very nice crack up into a overhanging crack/groove. Well protected and classic stiff 5.9. The crux here is pulling through the overhanging crack via lock...[more]   Browse More Classics in WI
