BETA PHOTO: The Railroad Tracks Area from the West Bluff


This area, located above the railroad tracks on the East shore of the lake includes Waterfall Wall, Railroad Ampitheater, Lumby Ridge, Birthday Rocks, Horse Rampart, Lothar's Ledges, and Squirrel's Nest Tower. The area is perhaps the most easily accessed group of rocks at the lake. Notable climbs include Pine Tree Step-Across, Birthday Crack, and Roger's Roof.

Getting There 

A map of the approaches

To get to the rocks above the railroad tracks, park at the north end of the South Shore parking lot. Head north towards the railroad tracks via a paved walkway. Once you get to the tracks follow them north along the east shore of the lake. After 5-10 minutes of walking you will see a large electric fence (more of a net) to your right. Railroad Ampitheater is approximately 150 feet past the end of this fence, while Birthday rocks is directly above the fence. Horse Rampart is a little higher up the bluff toward the southeast from Birthday Rocks. Lothar's Ledges are straight up the talus slope from the south end of the electric fence, and Squirrel's Nest Tower is directly south of Horse Rampart.

Woger's Woof Wightside 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  Wisconsin : Devil's Lake : ... : 7.3 - Horse Rampart
Woger's Woof Wightside is a very tough face climb over the sizeable roof halfway up the wall. To start, either climb up the lower half of Roger's Roof (the rib to the right of the alcove) or climb up out of the alcove itself. Once up to the overhang position yourself to the right of the handcrack in Roger's Roof. Use small fingerholds to pull yourself up past the roof. Continue to the top with challenging face moves....[more]   Browse More Classics in Wisconsin
