Description 

Named from the numerous times I have seen large porcupines at this crag. Which reminds us that we are visitors there, lets be considerate of the habitat. Cliff band that runs East by the Spirit Mountain entrance wrapping around West 180 degrees. A lot of new rock to be set and solid.

Getting There 

Park in the pull off directly across from the Spirit Mountain entrance. Hike due South into the woods toward the cliff face. Find climbers trail marked with orange tape.

Sit start with left hand on the corner and right hand on right corner, feet smeering. Work left hand up left corner and right hand up right corner. Top out straight up the face, friction and good smeering is a must. Strong but classic line!...[more]   Browse More Classics in MN
