The Cleo Amphitheater is probably the most frequently climbed area on the West Bluff. There are a good number of quality climbs found here and the access is relatively easy. The area sees morning sun and shade in the afternoon, so it's ideal for hot sunny days. The area is made up of the climbs on Cleopatra's Needle, the Amphitheater, the Wiessner Wall, and Turk's Head.
To get to the Cleo Amphitheater park at the gravel parking lot near the southwest end of the lake, across from the boat landing. The lot accomodates 20-30 cars. From the lot, cross the road and take the West Bluff Trail (paved) up the West Bluff. At the top of the bluff you will come to a lookout directly above the Amphitheater. The Wiessner Wall and Turk's Head are to your left (north), while Cleopatra's Needle is at about 11 o'clock if you're looking straight out off the bluff.

Make your way up the dihedral by stemming and using the crack. The dihedral is very relaxed and continuous. The dihedral gives way to face climbing about 15 feet from the top. Climb up the final summit pinnacle using nice face holds. ...[more] Browse More Classics in WI
