This hidden gem of Duluth is one of the most asthetic climbs in town. Starting with off-width and ending with hands, this crack should be 200 feet long! But it's not. The crack is 20 to 25 feet. The finish is a mantle to a small ledge and a couple easy moves to top out. Don't let the 5.6 rating fool you...this is a sweet route and may be a touch sandbagged if your crack technique is iffy. Go climb it now...


Little's the prettiest route there so you cannot miss it!
About 40 feet left of RTF. Follow a precarious deer trail to the ledge this starts from or follow the trail from South Little Fox.


Cams from .75 to 3. Ring anchors at top - If you use them to TR please your own draws...

Fresh anchors at the top finally! Please your own draws to top rope...not a great anchor to top rope from, though...more of a rap station...

A #4 BD works well down low, anchors are a bit offset to the left making any TRing difficult. This is definitely the best roped climb at Fox Rocks, the only draw back is that it is so short.

I had a hard time finding the anchor for this route. I don't know if I'm just too much of a sport climber, but the anchors are off to the left after you get onto the ledge after the "roof."

Yeah, the anchor was installed as a rap anchor rather than a top rope anchor...the rock to the right didn't present anything that I felt was good for top it's a sweet little trad climb :)

Big hexes feel good for the first 20 feet.
