Individual permits are available year-round at the park office. Weekends in May and daily Memorial Day through mid-October, permits are also available at the visitor center. Individual climbing permits are also available at the self pay kiosk near the visitor center.
Commercial Rock Climbing Permits (free):
Organized groups are required to obtain a new commercial climbing permit each year. This requires submitting a certificate of insurance with required liability limits and naming the State Of Minnesota as an additional insured party. Application forms are available by calling the park office at 651-539-4500. Requests for new commercial climbing permits should be submitted at least seven days prior to the climbing event to allow time to process the permit request.
This is home to the famous "B2 Bomber" (V4) arguably the best problem on the Minnesota side of Taylors Falls and first climbed by Jim Holloway. Other excellent problems include "Crash Landing" (V5) and several short but stout crack problems.
In the spring and after a rainy spell, this pothole turns into a mudhole. A classic tactic is to bring a tarp onto which to lay your crashpad.
