Amazing route like none other in Wisconsin. Moves straight up the arete, utilizes a bunch of heals to stop the barndoor, and lots of pinches and slaps up the arete. The crux comes up high with some thin vertical seams.


Located up and left of the mixed climb starts right on the obvious arete.


6 bolts, webbing and rap ring anchors.

Sorry, I can't claim this one. This was done before my time. PRetty cool though. Jul 16, 2008
This thing was a little heady with all the moss and sand, but if it get's some traffic I could see it being good. May 11, 2009

Dobbe I should have warned you that it needs a good brushing. In the past the first guy up brings a big brush and cleans on the way up and down. Then it really is an awesome route... May 11, 2009
I should have guest you had the super secret beta that would make it Awesome, this was a fun place I will be back for sure. May 12, 2009
No need for much brushing today. Bit easier than 11d probably 11b. I thought the hard part was getting to the clipping stance for the second bolt.

Flake jug is ready to pull! Please be gentle.

Slings on the anchor are unusable at this point. Next time I'm back I'll install chains. Jun 17, 2010
I added chains to the anchors for this yesterday. I have an additional chain I will pit on the 12 to the left next time I'm there. Aug 4, 2011
I forgot how awesome this route is! Laybacks and high-steps. Do it! Sep 1, 2011
