Description 

Nice little series of cliffs that lies at the, you guessed it, North end of the East Bluff.


Getting There 

Enter Devil's Lake State Park through the North Entrance, and follow the road past the North Shore Visitor's Center. Then continue on the road until just after the railroad tracks. Take a right and head towards the North Shore parking areas. Once here locate the East Bluff trail, which will lead you to all of the North End areas.

The coordinates listed above depict the ideal parking spot for summer shade. Check it out on Google Earth.

Nice moves. The crux is getting off the ground: either start flat-footed with a very long reach, step up on the block to your left, or work up a few face holds a little to the right until you reach the horizontal crack. Get your first piece of gear here. The upper crack is much easier, and pretty straighforward....[more]   Browse More Classics in WI

This area is littered with beer cans- if you are going to hike up there bring a garbage bag to pack out the cans.

This area was dry and climbable after a full day of rain.

please protect trees if top roping, a pad of carpet between your slings and the tree.

Access is down a well-worn gully on the South end of the formation, as the trail begins to traverse under rocks to the left.

We pulled out a few beer cans - they are worse at Tomahawk and Monolith. We also had a few pebbles tossed down on us by kids.
