Climb the left (south) corner of the south arm of Lincoln's Chair. In early July this route was very dirty and had lots of spiders and loose rock. It might be a good destination if you want to tick this feature, but don't go there for good climbing....[more]   Browse More Classics in WI

A good alternative approach is to find some old weathered concrete steps leading up the bluff (these die out after only a few feet) directly above the northernmost cottage. Hike up and slightly left for a few hundred feet on steep but uncomplicated terrain. Lincoln's Chair should be the first major outcropping you come across.

Yet another way to find this formation is to come in by Misery Rocks, drop down to the base of the Pantry by Special K Pillar, and cross the gully/boulder field to the south.

The advantage of this is that all but 150 feet is on well-worn user trails.

And Lincoln's Chair is small enough that you'll probably want to climb on some of these other formations anyway.
