Mid to late season, ice forms when it's been particularly cold weather. Perhaps the best/biggest vertical ice in the cities when it forms.
The flow is located on the north east side of Franklin bridge on the Mississippi. Generally you can park on river rd just north of Franklin

From what I can tell, this area is in minneapolis, not st. paul, so no permit is required.

There was a retaining wall installed within the last year, so the three routs to the right now have a ledge 1 to 5 feet deep about half way up the route.

Whoever put those bolts up there, thank you. All are great except for far climber's left pair, the bolt on the top of the concrete block was buried in mud and spun freely when dug out so it probably needs to be replaced.
