If you are on the hunt for hard, scary classics at Devils Lake, well hold up cause you just found one!! Cul de Sac Exit is a serious lead with the crux of the route being the R rated section...

At the roof, keep climbing left, up and over to an eight inch wide finger slot. Work up the arete with thin sidepulls, slopers, and underclings. Follow arete to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in Wisconsin
