Deep water soloing on the Emerald Wall.

Description 

Further north on Sandpoint lake there is a cliff that reaches 100'. It is in the long bay on the west side of Sandpoint lake called Grassy Bay. Grassy bay is a long narrow bay. It is about 8 miles long, and Emerald wall is almost to its end on the north side. One benefit of Emerald wall is it is on the Minnesota side of the boarder.

The downside of Emerald wall is it rises directly out of the water. Since your there though you obviously have a boat or a canoe. There is some route potential that has a dry belay on the right side of the wall.

Getting There 

Boat up to Sandpoint lake. Once in Sanpoint keep going north past the Canadian Customs. Go through King Williams narrows. Shortly after King Williams narrows head west down the long Grassy bay. Toward the end of the bay there will be an island. Emerald wall is behind the island.

There is the great wall. It was 1998 when I climbed and attempted some routes in this area. A great location with lots of route potential.
