This secluded formation gets little traffic compared to the more popular areas to the south. Getting to it can be a slight hassle during the summer when the plant life and foliage is overgrown. There is a nice flat boulder in front of it a little ways that makes for a good spot to eat, hence the name. Compared to other formations in the Receding Ramparts though, the base of the cliff is clear and mostly grass.

Getting There 

Follow the paved trail north and keep going when it turns into a grass trail and pass the Mini Fortress area. Once past the Mini Fortress area, the Receding Ramparts will be on your left and is labeled with a sign. It's easiest to identify this formation by looking for the distinctive off width crack that can be seen from the trail (Prehension).

This route is the most obvious must do (along with prehension) at this wall so you had better give it a try!The Thumbnail Direct begins in the alcove feature with a steep crack. Although the technical crux on this route is the first few moves, the final half of the route is mentally difficult due to hard to protect moves with iffy wires. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in MN
