Very easy to get to climb. All bolted sport routes.

Getting There 

Follow Business M-28 through Negaunee (it makes several turns). After the road goes under a railroad bridge, a 90-degree right-hand turn puts you on CR 480. Shortly after the houses end you'll see a sign on the left for Suicide Bowl Ski Jump (Suicide Bowl Rd); turn onto that road. About a half mile in, turn left on the power line road and park there. Do not block the road. Hike back up Suicide Bowl Road the way you came in and look for an overgrown two track on the left, very visible. Follow the two track for about 75 yards, and when it starts to trend uphill, look to the right for a faint dirt trail that heads uphill. You might be able to see the rock, as it's only 25 yards off the two track.

I checked it out tonight, and it seems pretty sweet. I was on my own, so I just bouldered around a bit though. Want to head out there sometime?

Pretty cool place! the rock didn't look good at first, but when I climbed on it the rock was solid and had cool features. Surprisingly, the mosquitoes were not a problem!

Climbing today on 7/9/17. There is a small wasp nest which had a wasp on it just up and to the right of the 4th bolt of scrutum in a crack. Don't reach up in there on the biggest clip of the route ;). You can top rope scrotum from the anchors of the route immediately to the right if you want to check it out.
