Anyone have beta about the routes here? I was taking the kids for a walk by the river and saw a lot more bolts than I expected. I've known there were some bolted routes there for years, but geez...for zero info anywhere there were WAY more than I expected to see. Steve M

Whatever you do, do not climb on them after it rained in the last few days. The sandstone holds will brake off. There are a couple of moderates and the rest are >=5.10.

Years ago I had a link to it but no more.

Ive climbed there. This area was developed many years ago, by a pair of teenage brothers. Like most everything they did, they were secretive and vague when it came to details. It probably had to do with concerns about access, but that was their general policy, and I don't know that they had any problems there specifically. You know how non-climbers are, especially in the midwest, so you can't blame them.
They have provided little info, and at least in my circles, not many know much about this place. Doubt any of these people will reveal details. Personally, I thought it was dreadful, and after climbing there, I stopped caring. But if you insist, I think the most efficient way to learn more would be to climb there.

I live here in Stillwater and have been climbing there for a couple years. there are some gems in all that choss. a lot of people hate this place, but I like the dirt and it makes every thing around the st. Croix that much better.
