Description

The Far East area hosts approximately 1.5 miles of semi-contiguous purple quartzite outcroppings. I've seen a few decent hard projects in this area but further exploration may yield a few more gems.

This part of the Ice Age trail does cross through private property so please stay on the trail until you enter the park.

Getting There

Follow the Ice Age Trail east of 113.

Nice Burt. Those photos are all from the Purple Tower area. The tall face to the right of Purple Tower looked like a decent highball project but it was too snowy to look closely. There's 1.5 miles of outcroppings and this is just one small section. Dec 14, 2016

I have climbed a few boulder routes out there too over the years but never thought much about them. They are quite out of the way. I tiook some pics a awhile back when I was snowshoeing back there...

I think Paul Jones told me about the rock out here, a few years ago. Nice to know he wasn't just pulling my leg! You four could well be the only people who have climbed those rocks, for all I've heard (or not heard)! Dec 14, 2016
EB, Just to be clear this area is nowhere near the junkyard boulder. It's east of 113, as in you have to cross 113 from Devils lake and then hike in to get to it. Dec 13, 2016

Paul Jones, Eric Zschiesche, and myself did a bunch of problems in this area in the 2001-2002 time period when the junkyard boulder was found. Still some highball projects to get sent for sure! Dec 12, 2016
