The Upper Wall currently hosts 4 problems with room for variations. We have posted the 4 most straight forward ones and claimed FAs on them since we cleaned them, found no signs they had been climbed before this past spring, and pulled off gratuitous amounts of rock to make them more secure. Keep in mind that most of the rock is rotten in Duluth and one can never tell what might come off in one's hand.

Getting There 

Go past the Lower Wall to the trail that currently needs a little work and it will take you up above and around about 50 feet away. You could also top out any of the lower problems and continue up, if you don't mind getting your climbing shoes dirty.
