There is also some rock here in the warmer months. The bridge that crosses the river overlooks a very fun cathedral. Very steep, not going to be led without bolts I don't think. I got on four different lines, three of which were at least an .11, but I couldn't pull any of them. One of them went at maybe a .10b. Ticked that one but didn't have a camera, so I will let someone else take credit for it. All of the routes were around 30 feet tall.
Directly across from the cathedral is a strong face surrounded by choss, it went at about 5.8, maybe 5.9. Dirty and not something I would trust gear in.
There are also some short lines with deep water potential, but that water is freaking cold.
If you go southwest along the lake shore, there are at least ten boulder problems under v4. None of them are taller than 15 feet, but bouldering in the fog as Lake Superior crashes into the rocks is definitely an awesome experience.
So, if you are staying in Lutsen or Tofte with your family and only have a couple of hours, this is a place is worth exploring.
