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.

Work around the giant flake below the start of the crack (either left or right, though left seems to put one in a harder position). Lay back or finger lock if you can get them in; rattly at places as well. Hold it together with some good footwork and you're free into the trees that gaze over the top of this wall. Exit to the right down a shallow gully. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Minnesota
