Winter Wall Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Winter Wall. January 2007.
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.

Red Wing laughed at this man's delusions, saying, "blow torch, smore norch. these holds will always be greasy and chossy!". With that, Mr. Engel punched the base of the route, thus creating the great two-finger pocket at its start. That guy has no e...[more] Browse More Classics in MN
