This hidden nook can be a welcome reprieve from the park tourists; it's usually inhabited by only a few climbers at a time, despite containing some of the best problems in the park. It's simply a fantastic place to hang out.
This is home to the famous "B2 Bomber" (V4) arguably the best problem on the Minnesota side of Taylors Falls and first climbed by Jim Holloway. Other excellent problems include "Crash Landing" (V5) and several short but stout crack problems.

Either move left and up (for the left variation, less fun), or move back to the right to a thrilling finish. More or less the same grade, both variations, maybe slightly easier movi...[more] Browse More Classics in MN
