Description Suggest change

The Reserve is home to perhaps the best climbing at High Cliff State Park. It is steep and solid, because the layer of choss that infiltrates climbing in the rest of the park is at the very base of these routes. The result is somewhat shorter climbing perhaps thirty feet at its highest, but the quality is unsurpassed. In summary the climbing here is very special and not to be missed.

Top Access: About 20 yds North of Entrance Rock lies an easy access gully.

Getting There Suggest change

Follow directions for the Stairs and Tower areas. Follow the trail between the main cliff-band and The Stairway Tower. The trail will start to head downhill; do not follow it. Instead continue south along the main cliff-band for a few hundred yards until you encounter Entrance Rock and Entrance Rock Wall. This marks the entrance to the reserve.
