West Bluff - Cleo Amphitheater Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Telephoto of Weissner Wall and Cleo's Amp from...
The Cleo Amphitheater is probably the most frequently climbed area on the West Bluff. There are a good number of quality climbs found here and the access is relatively easy. The area sees morning sun and shade in the afternoon, so it's ideal for hot sunny days. The area is made up of the climbs on Cleopatra's Needle, the Amphitheater, the Wiessner Wall, and Turk's Head.
To get to the Cleo Amphitheater park at the gravel parking lot near the southwest end of the lake, across from the boat landing. The lot accomodates 20-30 cars. From the lot, cross the road and take the West Bluff Trail (paved) up the West Bluff. At the top of the bluff you will come to a lookout directly above the Amphitheater. The Wiessner Wall and Turk's Head are to your left (north), while Cleopatra's Needle is at about 11 o'clock if you're looking straight out off the bluff.

Perched on the airy right-hand side of one of Devil's Lake's most impressive and imposing walls, Wiessner's Face starts on the right side of Wiessner's Ledge, and negotiates blocky terrain up and right to a good stance above the pine tree. From that stance, it links (at a moderate grade) edges and horizontal cracks up what appears from below to be a blank, improbable face. Each move up is an exercise in faith, but rest-assured, the holds will present themsel...[more] Browse More Classics in Wisconsin
