Description

This route is located just right of right of Columeister on the Minnesota strip.

The start of the climb is easy, romp up the blocks to several ledges. The start is the same start as Columeister. Then work your way up and right to a 15 to 20 foot hand crack at the top, the hand crack tops out the climb.

But first, after the last ledge it gets more sustained. Do some face moves that are very protectable to a horizontal flaring crack that leads to the hand crack. Before the traverse there is a really nice cam placement and then start the awkward traverse right, I think I might have got a hex in on the traverse.

Now your at the bottom of the hand crack. The crack is beautiful and starts to taper off towards the top.

Grab the top and........ Ill let you figure out the move.

The top has nice cracks to build an anchor.

Location

It is just right of Columeister.

Protection

A standard rack, save hand sized cams for the hand crack at the top.

Photos

Great, easy lead. The first ~30' don't need to be protected, easy 5th class. Takes gear well throughout, crux to the lip protects well with BD #2 & #3. Sep 22, 2016
