OK, here it is! One of Devils Lake best bouldering areas. This is not the largest area, but the problems here are classic and super fun. Well worth the hike for anyone who wants to get schooled by some of the best Devils Lake has to offer.
I don't know all the names, grades and FA's at this location. I'm basing what I post off of what I've climbed here, and also what friends who have developed and spent time in this area have told me. Please fill in any blanks that I have missed, I would love some feedback. Anyway, enjoy this beautiful and amazing Devils Lake bouldering area.

Instead of climbing the standard route up the west face climb the face to the left using a smeared palm and decent side pull with th eright hand. A tenuous move out left to a camo'd crimp leads to good pulls to the top and a straight mantle finish. One of my favorites at the reserve....[more]   Browse More Classics in WI
