Repeated this after the break a couple weekends ago with almost the same method as before. Makes getting the vertical rail a bit harder as well as getting the feet out right. Aug 13, 2013
It is worth noting that without Tyler's foresight, i wouldn't have tried this route more than 50 times Jan 4, 2013
Little little footholds to the right, then when u get to the burly left crimp, bump up with the right. When u hit the left ledge, just let the left foot go off tje start hold otherwise it will pop off. Then with a strong left lock move the right up. Then u are home Jan 4, 2013
It is worth mentioning that this problem is very doable without that foothold. ;) Jan 3, 2013

I worked the direct finish yesterday and it didnt seem too contrived. Found a cool knee bar that helped quite a bit. Aug 15, 2012

Did you guys try finishing straight up the face at all instead of exiting to the right? I think it might add a grade or two. Aug 5, 2012

Good work!

I always dreamed about this problem, but a HUGE boulder used to make it completely unclimbable. However, during the crazy Duluth flooding, the boulder somehow either exploded or made its way to Superior.

I remember the sit start being super crazy sharp and hard.

Just an FYI, the section labeled the Sanctuary here is not the "actual" sanctuary. The Confederate Wall and the Rock Bridge make up the "real" Sanctuary. The others boulders are on the next river over. Cleaning this up online will help avoid confusion. Jul 22, 2012
