Description

A classic for the area. Follow somewhat slabby, broken and run out terrain past a broken tree stump to a small ledge (5.6ish). Follow the double cracks to the top. Crack technique helps but is not required.

Location

The top of this route is easily identified by the top of the double cracks system.

Protection

Standard rack. Standard top rope setup. Don't use the triangular block surrounded by other rocks at the top that upon close inspection is loose.

Another great crack climb. Not too bad on the run out lower easy section. Hands and fingers on reasonable overhanging terrain above with good pro. 3 stars.

A spectacular TF crack route. This climb is an easy TR set-up but really shines when you jump out on the sharp end.

A little head-point beta for you would be to have a #11 (Black Diamond) nut on it's own biner ready to slot in at the start of the crux 2/3 of the way up on the right crack.

This is on my top 3 list for TF climbs. Sep 15, 2009
Pink and red tricams work nice on the cracks. May 21, 2013

Right of passage for MN and WI leaders looking to head out west and climb the big stone. Awesome by MN standards. Jun 3, 2014
