Hidden Treasure

5.11b, Trad, TR, 90 ft,  Avg: 3.5 from 45 votes
FA: Jim Kennedy
Minnesota > Tettegouche SP… > Palisade Head

Description

A somewhat sustained route in a corner using a combination of jams and stemming. I remember the crux being about half way up. This route is slightly overhung, so if pop off before you are about half way up, you may need to be lowered and start over. Fortunately the crux is up high enough that I was able to get back on after popping off there. The rock is rather sharp in places.

Location

This route is one corner southwest of Phantom Crack. From the old rock overlook the route is in a corner slightly to the left.

Protection

Nuts and small cams, I don't think you need anything very big. Standard top rope setup.

[Hide Comment] nuts and cams up to a #2 BD, doubles of small stuff (blue to red TCU). crux takes a great #1 camalot and/or small nut (#3 BD??). hexes work well for anchor at the top. bottom of route is often wet. May 12, 2008

[Hide Comment] Good lead route. Many opportunities to place gear (small gear). Not a route to whip on, but the climbing is secure. Good rest stances and the moves can be reversed. Jul 2, 2018
