This is it, the mother of all Munising climbs, although it's not the hardest, it's
the biggest, fattest, and most inspiring climb to look at and climb in the park. The
climb forms in two HUGE pillars fed by a creek above, that come together at the top
to form massive bat wings. From the frozen lake to the top of the cliff, it is over 200
feet high, with the actual climbing lasting for about 150 feet. The usual plan of
attack is to rappel down the climb from above and lead it back out. If you are not
able to climb back out to the top you have three options. If the lake is frozen, walk
west towards Mini Me and Sunny Day, you can get out there (about a 15 minute walk
on the shelf ice). The other option is to jug the rappel line, have fun! The third
option is a dead tree that can be found along the cliff line about half way to
StrawberryDaze. Head east towards the tree, and climb it out, its leaning onto the
cliff at its lowest point, which is about 12 feet high. These three options provide an
escape, but if you are out there, climb the route, it will be on the top of your ticked
list forever.
