Orion

5.9+ PG13, TR, 40 ft,  Avg: 3 from 1 vote
FA: Paul B
Wisconsin > Horicon > Ledge Park > Toprope Climbs

Description

The first half is a fun inside corner starting with a layback that quickly escalates to crimps. The top half gets scrappy with loose rock until a solid finish up top.

Helmets on, this place has loose rock abound... at least until we knock it all off... (hence the PG-13)

Protection

No leading here. Top rop is anchors are scattered and few but they can be found. We used two smaller trees (3in dia) and a stopper in a nearby rock.

Location

Approx: 43.467643N, 88.584465W
Not far from the parking lot adjacent to the camp sites. Walk on trail toward cliff-line, turn right on trail that parallels cliffs, walk about 25 feet... Facing off the cliff there is a small access route to the left, the top of the actual climb is hidden in the grove of small trees to the right
