Finding a perch after the 'tough run' above the bu...
The crux for this route is in the very beginning, about 10 feet up. Have not figured a path through the bulge yet, but a though line around the right side will get you to the nice classic flake and finger stuff.
Left center of the main climbing area starting under the obvious bulge. See area photo for the visual Beta.
So far, this has been a TR climb only. Thinking of asking permission to set gear for a sport route next year but afraid to 'rock the boat' with the rangers...

Please don't ask the rangers to bolt a route in the BWCA. North Shore ethic asks that you don't use chalk or bolts. Chalk and bolts are visual eyesores to others, and lets be honest, there will never be a whole lot of climbing on this cliff. There will be many paddlers that go by it. This area is especially sensitive since its a wilderness area and is relatively close to a popular access point into the wilderness. What is wrong with leaving it a TR or heady trad lead?
