Description [Suggest Change]

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.
  • RCM&W #62, p.167.

Location [Suggest Change]

About 15 yards climber's left and downhill of the keyhole is a large freestanding block. This route is found on the face facing the St. Croix River. To reach the top to set up top rope, scramble up a gully to the left of the keyhole route and to the right of this formation.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Nuts, and cams, nothing bigger than thin hands is needed. For the top rope setup slings or webbing and carabiners are all that is needed.
