Commercial Rock Climbing Permits (free):
Organized groups are required to obtain a new commercial climbing permit each year. This requires submitting a certificate of insurance with required liability limits and naming the State Of Minnesota as an additional insured party. Application forms are available by calling the park office at 651-539-4500. Requests for new commercial climbing permits should be submitted at least seven days prior to the climbing event to allow time to process the permit request.
Follow the double crack system to the top of the block, using a combination of face hold, hand jams, and finger jams. This is a fun route to put someone on who does not have a solid basis in crack technique. They tend to flail at the bottom. Using just the left crack earns you a 5.10 rating.
