DescriptionThis area is included in a strict no chalk ethic. The rock is anorthosite, very strong, but also very abrasive, I'd recommend bringing some old carpet to pad anchor set-ups and protect your rope. This is a top-rope or trad-lead crag. No bolts. None of these climbs have names, just numbers. Some of this information is adapted from the Minnesota and Wisconsin Falcon Guide, thanks to the author Mike Farris.
Getting ThereTo get there, get to Tofte and turn North onto Cook County Road 2 and follow signs to the Britton Peak parking lot, which is about 2.5 miles from HWY-61. Park in the lot and make the 30mn hike on boardwalks up to Carlton Peak. The trail will take you to the West Face.
