Comments: Stephen:If you don't mind me asking. What do you mean by your comment "if this climb (watermaraks)was anywhere else it would not be considered a classic"? Are Devils Lake "Classic's" any less a "Classic" by virtue of their location at Devils Lake? Please clarify.

Comments: "Full Moon over Baraboo" goes more directly over the roof and perhaps just a tich left, of courese not using holds on "Hero's Fright 5.7". This way may seem hard but at first but as you boost yourself up and lock off a nice hold comes into view.

I do agree that the face above the roof is not a "gimmie".In fact I think this route done this way is harder than "Upper D" which is sort of a bench mark 5.9 for Devils Lake.

I'm very partial to "F... more >>
