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.

Preemptive Strike 5.12b 7b 26 VIII+ 26 E5 6b  MN : Barn Bluff (Red Wing) : Winter Wall
A beautiful, overhanging, and intimidating climb on good rock. It looks very long from the ground, and while you're on it that impression is confirmed. The first third is not too bad, sort of warming up for the bouldery crux about 20 feet up. There are two ways to pull the crux; don't pick wrong or it's about 2 letter grades harder. Then it's a scramble to a half-decent rest in the big hole before sprinting to the finishing holds while you still have juice. Really, really fun rout...[more]   Browse More Classics in MN
