Small area on the south side of the trail while hiking to the Reserve, with a couple of Lake classics. Found by Eric B, and Eddy W. Later established by the great Eric Z. Needs more traffic, things are getting a bit green.

Getting There 

Hike up same trail as going to the Reserve. About 15mins in look for small rock outcrop on the right side of trail. Head south for about 50 yards and you should be on top of the small cliff band.

THE classic with the arete on the pillar. Climb up center of tall face with slab below(don't worry you'll easily clear it if you blow it)and follw crimps and rails to the top. Inspect the top out for accumulated debris first as the top out is super good if clean and scary if dirty....[more]   Browse More Classics in Wisconsin

Eddy W and I stumbled upon this amazing chunk of rock early in the day when we used to hike to Burma from the south shore. It only took us a couple of times doing that moronic hike until we realized that the road my be closer, and it was by about a half an hour! Eric should be credited with developing the pillar though and as usual he made sure to send all the classics before telling anyone! sneaky bastard.
