Minnesota > Blue Mounds SP… > Prairie Walls Area > 9. Chimney Buttress


Roofs goes up a broken crack system to an overhang (crux) and left facing corner. The crack stays wet longer than almost any other route at Blue Mounds. This route is a testy lead for the grade.


Starts in the crack about 15 feet right of Chimney Buttress's left edge.


Protectable (when dry) with nuts, small to medium cams, and probably hexes; otherwise use a standard Blue Mounds toprope (long slings helpful).
