A view of the ridge from the fork in the trail.


Chossy sandstone ridge. Most of the rock is loose, mossy, overgrown, and dirty. Sounds like fun, doesn't it?

That said, it has some huge ledges and fun looking faces that may have some potential.

Getting There 

From the main office: Hike towards the overlook. As the path goes uphill, it splits at a sign that reads "Parking Lot: left/Overlook: right". Look left at the sign, and you'll see an obvious formation along the trail. This is the Ill-Advised Ridge.

Climb up the mossy face on the leading end of the ridge. Giant holds appear everywhere as you ascend, but PLEASE CHECK THEM CAREFULLY. Large loose features abound, and if one of them pulled out while you were standing on it, it would ruin your day....[more]   Browse More Classics in Wisconsin
