Access Issue: June Voluntary Climbing Closure and Seasonal Raptor Closure Details


The Best Crack in Minnesota is definitely NOT the best crack in Wyoming. The climb is OK but nothing to write home about. It is located just right of the Wiessner Column, about halfway between Durrance and Walt Bailey.

Perform a tricky stem to gain the crack and then proceed up flared, lichen filled cracks to chains located around the corner before the crack dead ends.


Medium to hand-size cams sew it up.

This very well might be the worst climb in the Midwest...maybe. Awkward placements and funky, dirty movement makes this route definitely NOT worth doing. It is on par for Minnesota climbing, but even Minnesota has better cracks!
