DescriptionThe best 5.9 at the crag, and one of the best 5.9's I've done in MN. Check out Ross's Crack for the next level, and a superior route to this one.
Probably leadable, but make sure to scout it out first.
LocationBest to use Farris' guidebook to find this thing. All the routes on this side of the crag blend together on your first visit. One good way to find it is to look for the biggest west facing corner you can find, east of the main area.
Pass the first large toprope set-up area, and head back into the pines a little. It should be about sixty feet(?) down the line before you're close.
