A good first lead.

Description 

Probably the easiest route at Barn Bluff. Follow the left side of the chimney to the top, clipping the bolts along the way. A good beginner route or first lead. This corner is often a little on the buggy side, and there are often spider webs on the rock. This route could also be done as a trad climb if someone had large gear, although I've never done it.

  • RCM&W #94, p.134.


Location 

One of the first routes encoutered in this area. The chimney is found in a corner about 10 yards around left of the large rusted eyebolts.


Protection 

3 bolts to a two bolt anchor. This would also be leadable on large gear. Please use your own equipment for top roping.

This was a good route for it being my first lead. I'm a chicken but felt fairly comfortable on this one due to all the good holds. Mosquitoes were relentless. A bountiful supply of bug spray is a must on this route.

I liked this short, easy, unique route. Just don't wear your Sunday best, it's a little dusty back in there. I actually stopped midway and took my jacket off because I had just washed it, to the significant amusement of my climbing partner.

This was a perfect route for a first lead climb and visit to Red Wing! Great foot and hand holds letting me get used to placing draws, clipping, and cleaning the route several times over-- but still a little technique to keep it fun and versatile.

This route is almost always wet and muddy. For this reason foot placements can be unpredictable.
