Short, relatively easy climbs. Nothing terribly amazing, but when it's hot and the strip is full, the shaded belays at the base are definitely nice. Standard top rope routes from both sides of the overlook platform. However, don't use the platform itself for pro. Be careful of thoughtless tourists throwing trash over and gawking at you climbing. And also be wary of leaving your gear on top and of your anchor placements, especially webbing.

Getting There 

Take the trail from the MN parking lot up behind Tourist Rocks and onto the highway access path. Follow past the large rock outcropping and head along the trail just beyond the Keyhole Area. Take the wood stairs down and through the wooded area back towards the river until you reach the overlook platform.

Start in the crack left of the roof just in front of the tree. Traverse left and smear up the finger crack in the middle without Peter Panning and then straight up the rest of the crack. Make it much harder by trying to mantle up the awkward boulders and make your way up to the face climb left of the start into the crack.*#69 in the MN/WI book....[more]   Browse More Classics in MN
