Description 

This is the next section of rock one is rewarded with after the short hike along the flagged trail. There are two cracks that run parallel up this wall directly in front of where the trail meets this wall. The rock slowly becomes less climbable to the left, while gaining height and more features to the right. All in all, about 50 ft. long, and 20 ft at the highest. Perfect and flat landing all along the base.

Getting There 

Follow the orange flagging about a quarter of a mile through twists and turns along the trail. This is the first wall after the Tree Boulder, and is up slightly uphill and 20 ft. to the left of the Ultimate Block.

Start with an impossibly small crimp and a dish for your thumb, with feet on the huge ledge. A couple desperate moves deposit one into the amazing hand crack that finishes Flight of the Navigator. Time for the crimping men and women to pull out some traditional skills and jam to the top! Fun through and through! ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Minnesota
