The generic wall area is commonly reffered to as the warm up wall. Annadonia area (the Generic Wall/East End area in particular) falls directly beneath the end of the hiker trail. It's not uncommon for rocks to rain on climbers in this area from the hiker/tourists throwing rocks from atop barn bluff. Wear your helmet.
Follow the North trail from the top of the stairs. When you get to the T at the base of the crag, follow the trail to the right about 150 ft. A short climber access trail will lead to the generic wall.

Moist most of the time. Start off the ledge to the left climb to a very "hard to clip" bolt. Fun climbing with powerful reaches and sharp crimpers/pockets.

Just left of "Quiet Desperation."...[more] Browse More Classics in Minnesota
