Description Suggest change

Foxx Rocks is a collection of two small outcroppings and one larger cliff - Lower Fox Rock, Upper Fox Rock and Fox Face. Lower Fox Rock is up to 20 feet tall and features a few highball bouldering problems...only one of which has been done yet. It will require more cleaning and a developement session. Upper Fox Rock features a single slab problem and possible potential for someone with vision. Fox Face holds a few bouldering problems and 7 or 8 roped routes from 16 feet to 40 feet tall. The best routes to date on this side are Pandora's Box (5.9+) and Grandma Bubbles (5.11a R).

There are now permanent anchors on Pandora's Box and Grandma Bubbles. Please use your own draws and biners to extend the life of the anchors!
Thanks...

Getting There Suggest change

Park at the SHT pull off and head up the ATV trail towards Duluth. When you get to the obvious clearing (50 yards up the trail) cross the clearing towards Skyline and look for red flagging and the obvious trail. Walk about 200 yards. You'll come to Lower Fox Rock first.

Note, COGGS (Cyclists of Gitchi Gumee Shores) has put in a mountain bike trail here so you can access the cliffs via the bike trail.
