Description 

sweet cliff with a few fun and easy problems, and more waiting to be done, the water is deep enough to jump into in most parts but make sure to double check. This cliff is a great day trip destination if you are in the area. Also,there are pictographs on this cliff so please be mindful and do not climb on them.

Getting There 

It is the large over hung cliff along the north side of the Kawishiwi River that heads into Fishdance lake. Within a days paddle from lake Alice. This is in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) so it can only be accessed by canoe or kayak.

Climbing Season

Nice post. The potential for water-bouldering/soloing in the Boundary Waters and Quetico (Canadian side) is literally endless. Keep in mind that the lichen that covers the rock up there takes about 100 years to grow (at least that's what one of the Rangers said). There are also endless opportunities to cliff jump, as long as you've checked the depth first.
