The left side of the cave and up is this problem. ...


This line starts at a triangular hold at chest height half way back in the cave on the left side, comes out the cave and climbs over the first bulge to the left.


Walk directly uphill from the cinder block bathroom on the way to Group B.


Pad, 2 preferred and hopfully a spotter. Landing is good but it's a bit on the tall side.

Cleaned and tried by Freaney last fall, he suffered from "end-of-the-day syndrome" as well as "tall topout on a slightly slopey and chossy face" and opted to drop off. Stolen by me. Sorry John! Anybody know if this had been climbed in the past? JJ undoubtedly passed this way in years past...

FYI = I Personally showed this cave to Freaney last year. He was suprised he never came across it. We worked what became "groth spurt" for a bit and then we split. Any other possible lines in this cave are straight choss and if i remember correctly contain a funky loose block. Any good open projects left in the dodge? Im moving back home soon and looking for some projects. Looks like i missed out on a good summer back in good ole Wisconsin. Thanks for hiking and searching guys im pumped to try some of this new stuff that went up this year or was rediscovered.

Awesome, so you essentially showed it to me, once removed. Thanks! Yeah the rest of the cave is pretty chossy unfortunately.

No especially notable open projects really at the Dodge, but there are several/many at the Lake. Check out the bouldering section there, specifically new postings on the West Bluff and the East Bluff talus fields. Sweaty recently FA'd one of them, he know where a couple others are. There are probably lots more that aren't posted, just need to explore.

What up Greg. Welcome back... almost. I wouldn't know what you're doing out west cause you never update your blog. lame. There are some really hard things to be done at the lake. Like really hard. And the climbing in the talus is really good, steep, physical ect. You just have to get used to the texture (or lack there of I guess), hard though for sure.
