Comments: Yeah, mystery solved. That's me. Not a rando tourist. I'm a climber. I lived in Duluth at the time. Saw some rocks and decided to check'em out. I don't know many climbers that wouldn't do the same. Glad somebody read the rules, though.

Comments: Led this yesterday. Like Russel mentioned, the first 15 feet is unprotectable, but easy. You can get a solid nut or a cam under the overhang, then the rest can be sewn up. While this could be led on all passive gear, you could really speed things up with a set of cams to #3.

Comments: This would need a good scrub to get me interested. Slimy and full of moss when we were there. Probably a fun climb if you can find it dry or want to put some time in cleaning.

Comments: It's quite a bushwhack to get to the goods, so we took a couple days to do it. It could potentially be done in one, but it'd be a really long one.

Comments: I'm not ashamed to say that I don't even know what a "removable bolt" is.

Comments: I kept having to tug my harness up near the top due to the rope drag. I wish I'd have brought longer slings.

Comments: I think this might be a different route. I don't remember Phantom being a corner crack.
