Description

This hidden gem of Duluth is one of the most asthetic climbs in town. Starting with off-width and ending with hands, this crack should be 200 feet long! But it's not. The crack is 20 to 25 feet. The finish is a mantle to a small ledge and a couple easy moves to top out. Don't let the 5.6 rating fool you...this is a sweet route and may be a touch sandbagged if your crack technique is iffy. Go climb it now...

Location

Little Foxx...it's the prettiest route there so you cannot miss it!
About 40 feet left of RTF. Follow a precarious deer trail to the ledge this starts from or follow the trail from South Little Fox.

Protection

Cams from .75 to 3. Ring anchors at top - If you use them to TR please your own draws...

Fresh anchors at the top finally! Please your own draws to top rope...not a great anchor to top rope from, though...more of a rap station... Sep 9, 2008

A #4 BD works well down low, anchors are a bit offset to the left making any TRing difficult. This is definitely the best roped climb at Fox Rocks, the only draw back is that it is so short. Jul 3, 2009

I had a hard time finding the anchor for this route. I don't know if I'm just too much of a sport climber, but the anchors are off to the left after you get onto the ledge after the "roof." Aug 7, 2010

Yeah, the anchor was installed as a rap anchor rather than a top rope anchor...the rock to the right didn't present anything that I felt was good for top roping...plus it's a sweet little trad climb :) Aug 26, 2010

Big hexes feel good for the first 20 feet. Apr 29, 2012
