Description 

This is a pretty cool and relatively underdeveloped area of the lake. Much more potential here for new problems to go up. Mostly talus fields with some trees tossed in for good measure.

Getting There 

From the north shore pick up the Tumbled Rocks Trail and start hiking south. Walk past the Nancy Jo bench and look on the right for a patch of grass. Walk up here and start exploring.

Insomnia V3 6A WI : Devil's Lake : ... : Massive Vertigo Area
Awesome tall line up the tallest part of the face with the crux about 2/3 the way up, squeezing up a mini bulge. There is a committing and high stakes throw to the lip. Really fun climbing. Toprope rehearsed on the FA. A fall from the last committing throw has some bad possibilities....[more]   Browse More Classics in WI

I hiked around above this area yesterday and found some pretty cool lines that need to get cleaned up.
