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.
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."

The Big Roof area is the farthest little wall as you walk east and north along the trail. Yup, it's a big roof. This route is pretty sweet, if only for the intimidation factor. It starts on the sandy wall directly below the obvious big roof. Don't blow it on the first clip or 2 as there is a back-breaker rock that you started on. Have your belayer clip into the rusty bolt on the huge block on the ground. Climb up and trend a little right just under the roof and try to catch a little (uncom...[more] Browse More Classics in MN
