Description 

Right of the Cyclops Area, another south facing wall of the bluff. This area is facing the sun and climbable on warm/dry winter days. Aptly named as the Winter Wall.

Getting There 

Follow the main trail up to where it T's. When you see the wall, look for the obvious thin crack which is BarnBurner. This is the right end of the Winter Wall. This area extends about 250' feet west (left) to the scree pile.

Living All Over Me 5.12b 7b 26 VIII+ 26 E5 6b  MN : Barn Bluff (Red Wing) : Winter Wall
This route is a strong contender for the best route at Red Wing. Short, but powerful and sustained, with excellent moves on good rock; Living All Over Me is a change from the delicate, crimpy climbing that is so common on other hard routes at the bluff. Flat edges lead from the ground to the first and overall crux of the climb; a powerful boulder problem pressing into a nasty gaston, getting into a tiny undercling, and then lunging for a great incut edge.
