Description

Upper Michigan is the epicenter for climbing in Michigan. The U.P. offers over 100 sport and trad routes as well as a ton of smaller boulder problems. There are a few areas containing most of the routes, but there are also many smaller crags with 2 or 3 worthy routes hidden in the woods. Most routes are under fifty feet with easy top rope set ups but there are both sport and trad lines that will challenge hardened climbers from anywhere. Though the area is not a climbing destination by itself, it is beautiful and has many reasons to visit, it just so happens that you can get some amazing routes in while here.  Surfing, paddling, hiking, and mountain biking are just some of the other reasons to visit!
