Description of Area:
This one gets a bad wrap right off the get go with that name! This place is actually pretty fun with a few tall slabby lines that are kinda tricky. This place doesn't have a lot of lines, but the ones it does have are worth a quick check especially considering it's location near several other spots like First st., Whopee Wall, The Apartments, and more. Give it a go y'all!
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 here. Climbing beware, there are some very talkative local residents that are nice enough, but will kill a half hour or more just chatting with you and making sure you aren't up to no good. Give 'em a little time and keep the peace so they don't kill this spot for us.
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!
