FA: unknown
Wisconsin > Central > Mt Simon

Description

Crux is working your way up the smooth 1' face that looks like it wouldn't be that difficult. A crack would be great here, but none exists. Top anchor is far to the right so a nice swing awaits for those who come off.

Location

Easy hike down back side

Protection

Existing eye bolt anchor at the top

[Hide Comment] We had a route way over on the right that took the overhanging prow straight up from the bottom. I always thought it was maybe 5.10a.
I eventually got to the point I could solo it because I knew the moves so well. May 17, 2018
