One of the many lakes on the Gunflint Trail. Phot...


Wind your way through 57 miles of beautiful boreal forests, past glacial Gunflint Trail lakes, and through outdoor splendor where the only human habitation takes place at camp sites.(taken from gunflint site)

There is plenty of undiscovered climbing here. The ecosystem is very void of human contact(like many climbing areas). Please respect the environment when scouting new terrain. Happy exploring!

Getting There 

Hwy 61 to Grand Marais, MN. Then turn North onto the Gunflint Trail. All the established hiking is well posted and maps are available everywhere.

Magnetic Rock 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a V3 6A  MN : Gunflint Trail
This is a placeholder for Magnetic Rock. A large exposed glacial rock formation 1.5 miles from the Gunflint Trail on "Magetic Lake" hiking trail. I was unable to complete this send as I did not hike this trail with the proper gear. The photo is of me just playing around. The rating is a complete guess for the face in the photo. There are lots of possibilities here. If anyone has any information regarding this rock or climbing it please let me know....[more]   Browse More Classics in MN
