Calm Like a Bomb

Description 

About a gajillion years ago, a large, house-sized block detached from the main cliffband. On the downhill side of the block, the wall is steep, featured, and pretty good for bouldering. Most of the problems start with difficulty and get easier the higher you go. It's a good thing, as the wall is about 25 feet tall.

A roof splits the right side of the wall and presents the opportunity for some really hard problems. Most established problems start on either side of the long, low roof. The left side of the wall is quite tall and generally unsuitable for bouldering, though The Traverse of the Gods climbs across this section.

The leaf-filled corridor is also included in this area and can be found about 100 yards east of the block. The problems are shorter and provide high quality bouldering with good top outs.


Getting There 

Drive to the big parking area near the Red Bird statue. Walk into the large groomed open area and find steps that lead past the fence, down to the big block. To reach the leaf-filled corridor, head east along the cliff until you see The Overhang, a tiered roof formed by a 90 degree inside corner.

Walk down the steps to the east of the Redbird Statue and below the main pavilion area. The trail will take you to a huge detached block. Some good bouldering can be found on the downhill side of the block.A blank roof crosses the right side of the wall. "Calm" climbs up a very overhanging prow that juts out from the right side of the wall, just right of the roof. Heel hooks and slaps lead to easier moves. The climb was topped-out on the first ascent, but this is not necessary as the top is tall...[more]   Browse More Classics in WI
