There are also some bouldering routes on the north side of D'Arcy's Buttress. You are likely to find D'Arcy's Buttress full by 9:30 on any summer weekend.

Climb the corner just to the left of Cemetery Wall. If you miss some key holds or cannot reach them, this route will feel a bit harder than its rating. The crux for me was getting past the roof. This route like Cemetery Wall is short but fun....[more]   Browse More Classics in WI
