Individual permits are available year-round at the park office. Weekends in May and daily Memorial Day through mid-October, permits are also available at the visitor center. Individual climbing permits are also available at the self pay kiosk near the visitor center.
Commercial Rock Climbing Permits (free):
Organized groups are required to obtain a new commercial climbing permit each year. This requires submitting a certificate of insurance with required liability limits and naming the State Of Minnesota as an additional insured party. Application forms are available by calling the park office at 651-539-4500. Requests for new commercial climbing permits should be submitted at least seven days prior to the climbing event to allow time to process the permit request.
Top Rope Approach/Descent: Two approachs exist. The first is to the climber's right up a trail that leads to the old parking lot on Highway 8. Walk past the old parking lot to the left scrambling over several large boulders to the top of the climbs. The second approach is on the climber's left. Scramble to the base of Number 6 a.k.a. The Bulge and continue to the climber's left. A third class gully leads to the top.
