Located on the sunny side of the bluff, this area features long and/or exposed airy aretes, and faces. It looks like there is the possibility for a few long trad lines as well.

Getting There 

Just around the corner from the rusty ring wall there is a very tall face with one bolted line, a little further around and a short scramble will get you up to the other three routes.

Amazing route like none other in Wisconsin. Moves straight up the arete, utilizes a bunch of heals to stop the barndoor, and lots of pinches and slaps up the arete. The crux comes up high with some thin vertical seams....[more]   Browse More Classics in WI
