Hey There, 

Does anybody out there has any information about the history of climbing in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCA) in Northern Minnesota? 

I am curious: has it been done / when / where ? 

Feel free to PM me directly; I am interested in learning all that I can. 

Thanks! - A.C.

Find a guy named carter Stritch on Facebook from MSP. He has been doing some FAs in the area over the last few seasons although I believe most of his routes are just outside of the BWCA as that's where the walls are that he has found the most potential on.
