Description

A typical Munising-style pillar setback from the main shoreline in a cozy sandstone amphitheater.

A great diversion once you've climbed a bunch of the other ones.

Location

About 1/4-to-1/2 mile East of Dairyland (past Udder Delight) in an obvious amphitheater holding significant vegetation relative to the sandstone slabs surrounding it.

An interesting, though terrifying, dangerous, and not-recommended way to find this route in lean years is to rappel onto the sandstone death slabs from one of the free-hanging pillars (Udder Delight, et al) to the route's west, and then traverse the aforementioned unprotected 45-degree death slabs to access the amphitheater. Upon arrival the route's fifty feet of WI4 will be a welcome respite. I speak from experience that lingers vividly in the memory more than a decade-and-a-half on.

In reality, buy Jon's book and follow its advice to approach from above or below in fat years.
