Description of Area:
The apartments is probably the best bouldering wall in town, period. The only bummer with that fact is that it is on private property. With that though, several of the residents have given the ok to climb here, but you gotta keep it down and respect that you are somewhere you are not supposed to be. If asked to leave, do it. We don't want to mess this one up.
Sorry y'all, no published beta on this area.
Directions/access to area:
From Downtown, head West on 1st St past Mesaba Avenue. Take a right on 11th Ave W, then a left on W 2nd St. Park on the street at the dead end, you are now at The Shit Hole. Walk to the climbers left of the shit hole and look uphill to see the yellow flagging. Follow the yellow flagging along the cliff line and you will be at the apartments in about 2 minutes. Have fun, be safe with these tall walls, and remember to keep it down and mellow style. Again, THIS IS PRIVATE LAND, respect that and don't mess up the bit of access we do have to this amazing wall.
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!
