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

Description 

This line starts at a chalked triangular hold at chest height half way back in the cave on the left side. A really fun line with cool, mostly solid holds and a dynamic move on the first bulge, it comes out the cave and climbs over the first bulge (see topo) to a good ledge, then up and over the slopey bulge to top out on a large ledge you can stand on. The higher slopey bulge is a bit heady and high so be careful. You can 4th class it the rest of the way to the top of the bluff too if you want. The downclimb is to the left and somewhat chossy.

Line "A" on the topo:

The Sweaty Cave.  From the cinderblock bathroom on the way to Group B, hike straight uphill into the woods towards the rock.  Can't miss it.  Discovered or rediscovered last summer by John Freaney (of course), 2 lines have been done and there is potential for more but will be very limited by the choss factor.  The left line (A) is good and pretty solid, but tall.  The right side of the cave is fairly chossy, but (B) is kind of fun but short.  See "Groth Spurt" and "Schlick it Up" descriptions.

Location 

Left side of the cave seen here. Walk directly uphill from the cinder block bathroom on the way to Group B. Can't miss it.


Protection 

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.
