katie berg - the traverse
Description of Area:
One of the most unique boulders in the Duluth area. Avery's has all of these little chicken head features which make it a really fun place to climb as you don't know which ones to grab! Several great lines on a free standing boulder and real close to several other spots like Casket, Foxx, Brewers, and more. This boulder doesn't seem to get as much action, which is just a shame as it's soooo cool! Get out there and show it the love it deserves.
Directions/access to area:
From HWY 35 exit Central Ave. Take Central all the way till it stops at the corner of Central Ave and Colombia St., park here. Walk up the small hill to the train tracks and take a right down the tracks. Walk maybe a hundred yards or so and you will see a faint trail leading into the woods and the boulder.
This is still a work in progress, but I'm trying to make one google map with all of the local crags pinned on it for easier location finding. These are not GPS pins, just me looking at the map and putting something that's pretty darn close to the actual location. As always with anything that gets you out in nature, a little resourcefulness and an adventurous spirit goes a long ways. Click here and happy hunting!
