Kate Muehling on the dirty but surprisingly fun Wh...


This area lies at the very end of "The Dark Side" of the bluff. Although there is some steep climbing here, most of the routes are vertical to slabby. There's definitely a couple classics worth checking out. A large block sits on the ground that created the large triangle shaped roof. There's an old home-made bolt in the block that was placed after it fell.

Getting There 

Follow the main trail up the cement stairs from the parking lot. Keep right and hike up to the top. At the top of the trail hang a right at the "T" and keep going past the "Anadonia" area." Follow the trail all the way to the end of the "The Dark Side." Easily recognized by the large triangle shaped roof.

really bad costume that day

Quick Draw Moves to Hollywood 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- E3 5c  MN : Barn Bluff (Red Wing) : Large Roof Area
This route should get more traffic. It's pretty fun. From the Big Roof, walk back left along the face, avoiding the poison ivy. This is the middle of 3 lines on a big flake. Stay on the flake for full value and fun. Try for the onsight! BETA WARNING: The crux is about 15 feet up with an awkward side pull with off balance feet while you attempt to pull up high enough to hit the next jugs. Easy terrain awaits you after that. I think it shares anchors with In The Pink, but I could be wrong. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in MN
