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.

A Drilling Experience 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  MN : Barn Bluff (Red Wing) : Winter Wall
Go to the huge block marking the start of the Start of Something Good. Walk about 20 feet to the right along the wall to the next bolt line, underneath an overhanging bulge. This route has a one-sequence crux that is a little tricky due to being so far underneath the holds and an inability to tell which ones are good and which are crap. Once you pull the crux and are up on the bulge, there is a traverse left that while pretty easy, is a bit scary as if you blow it you're going for a ride/swin...[more]   Browse More Classics in MN
