Ben, there isn't very much for freestanding boulders, but there is a lot of short cliffs that you could put up tons of problems on.

Is this area near being opened to the public? I'd love to get on some of this stuff this spring.

Area is open to public..ATT there is no signage or marked trails, so we are asking that climbers be mindful of private land owners not to ruin this for future use. This would mean climbers need to aware of public borders and access and or contact local climbers for beta.Benton Lake Rd,Norway,MI is the road we use to enter state land, we park under the power lines east of the climbs.
I see a need and will work on a map soon. superioriceclimbingadventures....

I was wondering who we would contact if we want to try and get to some top rope climbs in Section 18? Our family goes to Eagle River often and is looking for a place to climb within a couple of hours. Any help would be great! Thanks!
