To find the Promised Land walk due west until you reach the railroad tracks. Once you reach the tracks head south down them until you see a cliff line on your right/west (maybe 1/2 mile). Stay on the tracks until the cliff line starts to recede further west away from you. As this happens watch for the "marker boulder" (a lone boulder sitting by itself in between the tracks and the cliff). As you see this watch for a foot path and take it. This will lead you to the boulder and then to the cliff. You are now in the Promise Land.

The Promise Land has another 50 or so routes to add to the rest of the beautiful routes at Jackson Falls. The concentration of five star routes here is astonishing! Some of the best looking walls in the Midwest are here. There are a handful of easier routes but this area is best suited for the 5.12 climber. Because of the 30-40 minute approach and the tougher climbs this area can easily be a ghost town or have one maybe two other parties climbing on a busy weekend. Jan 21, 2011
