The Parachute Club

5.9-, Sport, TR, 25 ft (8 m),  Avg: 2.3 from 12 votes
FA: unknown
Minnesota > Quarry Park (St Cloud)

Description

One of the longest routes at the quarry. Starts in a left-facing dihedral on the broken corner to the left and down the wall from quagmire. If this location description is confusing, then just look for the only route with 4 bolts up it (although the 4th bolt is useless, and probably for the 5.13 on the face just to the right of this climb). The crux of the route is about 5-feet off the ground, where some stemming will make up for less-than-ideal hands. Past the crux is easier ground to the top.

Protection

3-4 bolts with a 2-bolt anchor at the top. Bring a cordolette or two 48" slings for the TR set-up.

[Hide Comment] Scary on lead. 5.8 is a definite sandbag if leading. The first bolt is a mangled, rusty POS that I fell on, although my belayer's head broke most of the fall :). Insecure clipping points. Jan 25, 2019
