Relationship Wall. West-facing wall.


Small crag with two walls separated by a 90-degree arête. The most popular west-facing wall, easily seen from the drive-in trail just past the picnic area, hosts high-quality Compromises and Adoption. The south-facing wall (with difficult Harvest Moon and dirty Start New ) is often damp and may take longer to dry out after extended period of rain.

Getting There 

First crag located just past the picnic area: with a picnic table in front and 30ft walk from the parking spot.

(Equipped by J. Engel and M. Endrizzi) 15 feet left of "Compromises". This is an excellent route with the 2 cruxes: one at the very start and one at the very end. Crank up on small but good in-cuts to do a hand & foot match (yoga practitioners will find this easier than most…). Climb vertical rail feature to a whitish, slightly mungy section about halfway up. Move left and then up through large horizontal cracks to upper headwall. Hopefully, you've saved a little juice to pull through the last ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Minnesota
