Description

The first area you come upon from the parking lot, there are a few excellent boulder problems that make this a nice place to warm up. Slick, polished slopers, and some thin crimpy problems, including the classic hard/scary problem One Slim Fish, the frustrating The Crack, and classic balancy V3 Twinkletoes.

Getting There

From the Minnesota State Park office, head down towards the river. The Pit is below the first railing, to the left of the walkway. The best way down to the boulders is to scramble down the talus/retaining wall, or the path across the marsh opposite the route "Slicksides."
