Ted Kryzer on Crank-n-Go-Go. May '10.


This area stands alone about halfway in between the "Anadonia area" and "New Vice area." Although many of the climbs have sandy starts, this is some of the most unique climbing at the bluff. The center of the wall contains two large roofs that offer fun, steep routes. Although most of the climbing starts at 5.11 and goes up from there, this area does contain a couple of classic moderates. A great place to be if you get rained on in the middle of your day.

Getting There 

Follow the main trail up the cement stairs from the parking lot. Keep to the 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." After a washed out section of the bluff this area lies about 100ft from the main trail. Very easy to recognize because of the two large roofs in the center of the wall. If you get to the Quarry bolt, you've gone too far.

The Perfect Crimb 5.9 5c 17 VI HVS 5a  MN : Barn Bluff (Red Wing) : Perfect Crimb Area
Climb up to a small ledge and clip the first bolt. Continue up the dihedral, steming your way to the top on somewhat polished foot holds. A fairly sustained climb, one of the better 5.9s on the bluff. * RCM&W #84, p.131...[more]   Browse More Classics in MN
