This cliff face is granite and mostly hard rock with a few soft spots (obvious). Being in the wilderness area of the Minnesota Boundary Waters it is completely secluded and as far as we could tell, has never really been climbed (a real shame since it offers so much diversity). Mostly TR, with a few lines offering Trad with somewhat limited pro (we will be trying more of this next year). Def bring cleaning tools, a lot of this was covered in crispy lichen and collected dirt in some of the buckets. Not much protection from the sun for most of the day, but usually a nice breeze. The north portion of this cliff offers some great solo free climbing opportunities with deep water below.
50 miles northwest out of Grand Marais, Minnesota off Gunflint Trail on Seagull Lake. When get out on the lake it is approximately 1 hour paddle from the landing, and is marked on the areas website as a scenic lookout site. It has a trail on the south side that is a short hike to the top of the cliff.
