One of the best routes at Marquette Mountain. Can be easily top roped but also makes a nice trad lead. The crux is pulling the first lip and the gear is tricky. Be careful and have fun.


this climb is on the right wall with 5 angular cut overhangs


toprope off trees or nuts and small cams.

On lead, this climb can have some consequence. If you climb it direct, your first placement is 10-15 feet up with some distance between gear. I have only led this with nuts so this may vary...the top gets more positive.
