Description [Edit]

The biggest grouping of climbs at Minnehaha, and the tallest routes, are found on the main wall. Routes range from the classic Main Crack(5.4) to the seldom-done Screaming Fingers(12a). The prominent dihedral in the center of the wall is the area classic Dihedral(old-school 5.9)

Getting There [Edit]

Angle left from the parking lot and you can't miss Main Wall. It is visible from the the lot, about 150 feet Northwest.
