on the hunt for good (well, any) slab climbing in the Minnesota/Wisconsin area, something reminiscent of Tuolumne

There is some slab at Area 51 on the Superior hiking trail. There is slab at Norwich Ledge in the UP and there is some slab by Marquette MI on Presque Isle and some slab at shovel point on the north shore just off the top of my head.

No Presque Isle Jon, U.P. Slab climbing is Negaunee Slab just outside of Marquette and Catholic Girls up on Cliffs Drive in the Keweenaw

Jon pretty much nailed it...Not anything else I can think of and I have pretty much been everywhere in the area.

Bill, what is that slab just off the water up in MQT? Guess I was thinking wrong. Sorry for the wrong beta.

The Pinnacle

The Pinnacle is the classic climb on the isle. There is some slabby bouldering over the water but pretty short

"That Girl's a Bitch" in Elden is a sweet V6 slab!

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
