Description of Area:
Just like Whopee is where most will experience outdoor rope for the first time, Enger is where most will get their first boulder sesh in. Nice flat landings, super easy approach, not too tall of lines, and pretty mellow crack/layback kind of lines. I love this spot and it's one of my favorites to stop at to warm up as I'm heading to another crag that is west of this spot.
Besides the crack lines, there are a few super fun slab lines here. Check out "ASP3" and the newer line "Where lovers lay." If you want to stretch it all out a bit more, it's pretty fun to start on the left most crack line and traverse low to the ground through all of the other lines to the start of ASP3 and finish up with that line. There's some super fun pushing on nothing holds in order to get through some of the transistions!
Directions/access to area:
From Skyline Parkway turn onto Hank Jensen Drive. You will see a little pull off parking area on Hank Jensen next to one of the ponds with a big rock face on the other side of the road. Park and walk up the hill a very small amount and you will see a little trail leading up into the woods. Go up and around some smaller faces to get to the main face that people tend to climb.
Mountain Project Beta:
Click here to go to the Mountain Project page for this location. The Duluth Mountain Project pages could use some serious love via better pics, better descriptions, and general updates; so if you feel like helping inform everyone, a little time and effort would be much appreciated!
Having killed off the "socials," this is my way to have some pics of the various crags out there to hopefully get you amped and ready to go crush at a local crag. Enjoy!
