This little rock houses some short but sweet routes. The block is maybe 8 feet tall, but it will keep you occupied for awhile. It is very pocketed limestone which will make some of the routes interesting if you are selective of the holds.

Getting There 

To get to the Black Pearl, take a left at the 'T' intersection and park in the first parking lot on your left. Take the trail on the left side of the parking for a little ways. Go until you meet up with the main gravel trail. Take a right and walk until you see it on top of the bluff on your right.

This route starts in the cave on the left face. It starts with the two pinches on this small face. Go straight out to the arete, follow the arete to the top-out. Don't use wall behind the route which will make it much easier. This is a very cool climb and you'll get a lot of attention from all the hikers on the trail because they can't miss you. When I climb this route it somewhat reminds me of the very popular route, "The Overhang" by the Pavilion....[more]   Browse More Classics in Wisconsin
