Description

The Birthday Rocks area contains many fine climbs, starting about 50 feet up from the railroad tracks directly above the electric fence. The northwest end of the wall contains shorter climbs, while the southeast end terminates at a tall tower. Birthday Crack (5.7) is the classic climb of this formation, and there are a half-dozen or so other moderate climbs to keep you busy. The Birthday Rocks are also home to two long and difficult climbs, the Great White Hope (5.11a) and the Caesarian West Face (5.12b).

Getting There

To get to the Birthday Rocks, walk north along the railroad tracks from the South Shore parking lot until you see the long electric fence on the east (bluff) side of the tracks. You will find the Birthday Rocks directly above this fence about 50 feet from the tracks. Top-rope access can be gained by skirting south and east around the Caesarian Tower at the southeast end of the wall.

I climbed Horner's Corner at Birthday Rocks today. This is one of the most exposed routes I have been on at the Lake. Rated at a 5.4 is a bit low for the top portion I thought. It should be listed as a classic as far as I am concerned. Devils lake classics usually have old pitons and this one does up at the exposed top move(s). Oct 23, 2011
