Description

Norwich Ledge is no doubt the largest cliff in the state. The wall ranges from 100 to 300 feet tall and is about a half mile wide. The climbing is dirty from lack of use and there are sections of loose rock. This area could become a developed some day, but for now I would call it adventure climbing.

Getting There

The ledge is located outside of Bergland MI in the western UP. Drive north from the town of Bergland on Hwy 64 to Old 64. Turn east on Old 64 and drive 4 miles to the second right turn on Old 64. Turn right and drive aprox. 2 more miles to the end of the gravel road and a parking area for 2-4 cars.

(For winter access, when Old 64 takes a 90 deg left turn at 1 mile from the junction, go 50 feet further and take the RR tracks to the left. Ski another 3 miles on the tracks to the base of the cliff)

Across the road there is a dirt path to the top of the cliff, witch is about a mile walk.

From the top of the cliff, head slightly down and far left to the rappel line if you are looking for the fastest and easiest way to the bottom. One 60 M rap will take you to the dirt, or two raps, both less than 30M will also work. Both rappels are bolted. The top rap has two bolts, the mid station currently has only one bolt.
