Location: WI : Devil's Lake : East Bluff - East Rampart : Bill's Buttress : Coatimundi Crack (5.6)

Comments: This thing always feels hard for 5.6. Everytime I'm on it, I try to figure out a sequence that is both dignified and 5.6. I have thus far failed to find a sequence that would qualify as either - let alone both. Coatimundi is significantly harder than False Alarm Jam, its neighbor to the left, which is commonly called 5.7. Coatimundi feels about as hard as Grand Inquisitor, its neighbor to the right, which is also given 5.7 (although Coatimundi protects muc... more >>

Comments: I updated the name and grade of this route based on information in the excellent guidebook to Jackson Falls by Yusuf Daneshyar. That book is available for purchase here.

Comments: Mandatory hand jam on a 5.4? It's easier than the mandatory jam(s) on Brinton's Crack but it's at least as hard as the climbing on Foreplay.

Comments: Once, as a young climber and before I knew the area (ca. 1998-99), I attempted this route thinking it was Charybdis - a (perhaps exceptionally) rude awakening ensued. I lowered off a single nut, and quickly retreated with my tail between my legs - to-date I've yet to return.

Comments: Does anyone know the history of this route's name? Or what the acronym is short for? I've always been curious.

Comments: I could totally see that - "X" might be closer to the mark than "R".

Comments: Wandering, awkward, and sharp - there are many better routes at the park...many.

Comments: If this finishes in the hanging dihedral up top, then 5.7 is not even in the ballpark, for that matter 5.9 isn't even in the ballpark.

Comments: I'm not sure what the record is, but 28 would have to be close. I've been trying to goad a partner into 100 routes in 48 hours (a weekend), been told it's impossible - I don't agree. If 50 in a day is possible, 100 in 2 days ought to be in the realm...


Location: WI : Devil's Lake : East Bluff - East Rampart : Pedestal Buttress : Birch Tree Crack (5.8)

Comments: This is definitely one of the best 5.8 leads in the park. Great gear available, with an easily-protected yet sharp and distinct crux that leads to fun splitter climbing above. An absolute must-do for the 5.8 leader at Devil's Lake.

Comments: Maybe should start adding "Q" grades to problems in SW Wisconsin based on how questionable they are.

For Example:
The Little Flatiron (V4 Q0)
AAA (V7 Q5)
Cannons (V6-V11 Q10)

Comments: Climbed here last weekend for a bit - this place still needs traffic! The routes are good, don't let them sand over into obscurity. Bring your brush and do your part.

Comments: Fun, with a definite (and reachy) crux surrounded by easier climbing. Being fairly well-bolted this didn't live up to Mill Creek's sparsely-bolted reputation...its neighbor to the right Magic Carpet Ride more than makes up for it in that department though.
