Over in the New Vice Area there's a lot of apparent damage both to trees and and the rock, no doubt caused by the long and tumultuous spring. This photo shows a broken birch tree hanging right over the Prairie Fire/No Whippin' Boys anchor. Clearing this will potentially be a big problem; please use caution or avoid the area for now.

Up at the top you'll find this shiny, brand new anchor. Enjoy it, you've earned it.  <br /> <br />I assume that this is the work of the MCA, is that correct? Regardless, to whoever put this up, thank you, I will buy you a beer.

Comments: My current favorite on the "Generic" wall. Definitely more technical than High Boltage or Too Low for Zero and also more fun.

Comments: I climbed this recently without the recommended backup pro. It is by no means the most dangerous runout 5.8 at Red Wing, but probably the least worth it.

Comments: When my buddy and I got on this a couple weeks ago, we found a leaver on the third bolt. We moved it up one.

Comments: We climbed this last weekend and to mitigate the rope drag, we for one belayed from a good 15 back from the wall, and also stuck a sweatshirt under the rope up where it lays across the rock. It was bad news for my buddy's sweatshirt, but at least it put our minds at ease about the rope.

Comments: Not a great physical challenge, not a great technical challenge but, for the novice leader, a significant mental challenge. If you're new to leading, expect to learn just exactly how seriously you take your own skill, particularly from the ground up to the second bolt.

Comments: Obscure but super fun. As mentioned in the description, you get to use a wide variety of moves on this route - stemming, mantling, lay-backing and more. If this were bolted, people would compare it favorably with Perfect Crimb.

Comments: I liked this short, easy, unique route. Just don't wear your Sunday best, it's a little dusty back in there. I actually stopped midway and took my jacket off because I had just washed it, to the significant amusement of my climbing partner.


Location: MN : Barn Bluff (Red Wing) : The East End : Sunburst (5.7)

Comments: I agree with Sonnabend. I lead this a couple days ago (my second outdoor lead ever) and although it's definitely slick, in the grand scheme of things, it's not that bad. Even where it's polished there's usually at least one good handhold or a big ledge for your feet, and all of the clipping stances felt really solid. However, on the day I climbed it was a perfectly sunny day with mild temps and the crag was very dry; I'm sure that more adverse conditions would make this feel a lot more... more >>
