BETA PHOTO: Little Fox Canyon and Fox Rocks


Originally found by Nodin in spring of 2007. A few routes were developed that summer but the majority of the problems have been put up recently in the summer and fall of 08. Comprised mostly of three high ball slabs and a few other boulders. The three high ball slabs are just short of vertical and the rock is very frictiony (Anorthicite I think). Most of the problems are pretty high but have very good landings. There is still potential for more so get out there and start sending.

Getting There 

Park at the SHT pull off and cross the road. Take the SHT to get to the top of the climbs (1/4 mile) or better yet, follow the orange flagged trail to lead or boulder

A Little Fox classic and a must do for any Minnesota Hardman! The most obvious line on the three slabs. Sit start under bulge on two bomber side pulls. Pull up over the bulge to a sloppy/frictiony rail and then move your left hand to a small rail where you can fit 2-3 fingers. Find a small nub for your left foot on the slab and pull up into a right hand foot match. 10 feet of mellow climbing brings you to a good rest. Here you can contemplate either down climbing or committing to the top ou...[more]   Browse More Classics in Minnesota

I'm starting to wonder if maybe there's enough problems here now to consider reorganizing them into sub-areas under North Little Foxx. it's starting to get pretty tough to keep track of what's where

I think that this area is just about climbed out except for a few very hard projects so that won't be too much more added. I will work on making a detailed topo of the area and post it in the near future.

Post-construction access to North is about the same as before. SHT parking, cross the road. The flagged trail washed out a little by the stream, forcing a slightly different path, but it's pretty easy to follow once you find it on the other side of the stream.
