Fearless Leader location as seen from the road 200...

Description 

This route name was inspired by the Bullwinkle J. Moose thread on Super Topo. It brought back memories from my childhood, especially since I grew up in Frostbite Falls, Minnesota (well at least Minnesota). Crux is from 2nd to 4th bolt. Climbing is continuous and may require a fearless leader.


Location 

Several hundred yards upstream from the Animal World parking lot. Past the Beer Can. During low water level, can be approached by parking 1/4 mile past the Animal World parking lot on the river side of the road. Wade the stream near a large rock and walk downstream. During high water level, use the Sleeping Beauty tyrolean and follow a trail upstream. It goes up a steep hillside and traverses a large ledge. When it drops down to the woods again, Fearless Leader is 100 feet away.


Protection 

6 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.
