Description

A wonderful sustained hand crack in a corner hanging above Lake Superior finishing on an easy exposed arete.

Rap down the crack that eventually turns into a corner until the crack pinches down to nothing at a very small "ledge" left of the crack about 10 ft off the water. If leading good luck not getting your rope wet when pulling it. We rapped a single line and were able to flip it around the arete to the left to get it mostly out of the way or have third person pull up your rap line.

Climb up the obvious crack until it peters out, then bail left to the arete for a few moves until trending back right and finishing on the crack on the face.

Location

Hike up north until you can see Palisade Creek coming into the lake and locate the epic triangular diving board. Yamadori is climbers right of this and around the corner. See pictures for the location of the top of the climb. If you can’t find it you probably didn't go far enough north.

Protection

Top anchor is trees needing some pretty long cord/webbing. Gear for leading is mostly between .5 and 2 with not a lot bigger or smaller so I would suggest doubles in that size. A hair run out during the easier climbing up top but protects really well through any hard parts. Anchor down low is two .75’s and a .5.
