Description

This area is a west facing limestone cliff ranging from 20 to 35 feet tall in High Cliff State park. Routes are top roped from trees above. Cracks and ledges on face climbs are all over the cliff with some interesting overhanging areas. An ok place to climb on an afternoon as well as doing some drytooling. Rock can be wet and muddy in cracks in the early season.

Admin note: "Parts of High Cliff are included in the dnr's State Natural Area program so please respect that and do not climb in areas that are signed as State Natural Areas."

Getting There

From Appleton take hwy 10 east to hwy 114 east. go south where the road sign tells you to go south and into the park (need a sticker). the climbs are located along the entire cliff line. best areas are just west of the campground
