Description

Let's face it, we're climbers in the Midwest, and that means we need to be creative sometimes. I have felt for a while that Devil's Lake needs an area for the types of things that us Mid-westerners' come up with to keep ourselves entertained and motivated in the flatland.

So I propose that this should be the place to post the linkups, challenges, and other weird "route-ish" things that you come up with to keep yourelf entertained, motivated and/or train for the mountains.

Getting There

Follow the directions for Devil's Lake and then listen to the voices in your head.

Love it! And thanks for adding the South Bluff gullies. I can get a start on the West Bluff towers circuit. I've got a list with GPS coords. Jan 5, 2014

I couldn't agree more Doug. I've been thinking the "Linkups" section should contain 4 subsections, "East Bluff" - "West Bluff" - "South Bluff" - "Multi Bluff". Thoughts? Dec 27, 2013

A description of the West bluff towers circuit would make a nice addition here. I'm thinking you could provide an overview, with links to individual routes pages? Dec 27, 2013

This years goal,for me at least, lead 50 routes in a day!

Another one I have thought of which popped in my head when we first did the West bluff towers, was as many towers as possible in the park, east, west, & south! Go get it!!! Dec 27, 2013

Great idea James. I can't wait to start adding to this. The West Bluff in particular is a big wide open canvas I am thinking... Dec 17, 2013

Also I have no problem with this "area" being arranged and rearranged as makes sense. My thought was simply to give a home to the things that just didn't seem to have one. Dec 16, 2013

James! I too have been thinking we need a place to post linkups and circuits! This is the place for our DL "Astro-Boy"!

I think this "area" should include either the word "linkup" or "circuit" in the title. Dec 16, 2013
