Description 

Free standing tower right after leaving the Minnesota strip area. With a large fist sized crack about half way up. The Falcons Guide book describes it as a wretched flaring five in crack. The main climb on the Devils chair follows up the crack onto a ledge. I feel there is a possibility for another route on the left side. Walk off decent.

Getting There 

Follow the climbers trail down the St Croix river on the Minnesota side. After you walk past the Minnesota Strip it is just off the trail to the north. You cant miss it.

Climbing Season

For the Interstate SP (Taylors Falls) area.

The Falcons Guide described it as a wretched flaring five inch crack. I disagree and thought it was very enjoyable. Start at the two finger cracks and continue up the fist to off fist sized crack for about five more feet until you come to a ledge. Climb the corner to your left to the top. The guide books rate this as 5.9+, I would give it more like a 5.9 or 5.8+....[more]   Browse More Classics in MN
