A spot to Deep Water Solo?  No, it's only a few feet deep at the base.

I've seen this thing a few times before, and I was wondering if anyone has ever done anything on this. Anyone know?

I have TR's stuff on this formation years ago but never went back. It's OK and an OK diversion for a few hours in WI. The rock varies a lot even on just this one formation but this is typical for "The Dodge". There are better "hidden" crags at Govn'r. This place is nice because you get breeze's from the lake and the base is all nice pine needles.... I can't remember any of the actual climbing on it (good or bad) which maybe bodes not well....

Seems like the face on the lake side would at a minimum have some great position and exposure to it.

Actually, there is a big drop off in the water here. This would be deep water "solo-able" but you would have to kick off the wall if you started falling to hit the deep stuff... I investigated this once.

I believe Ellen Guller and Pat Bodien climbed this earlier this year.
