Rappelling on HomeRun

Check for Private Property Infringements before climbing


Dubuque routes submitted are star rated in relation to each other.

As approaching the rock, head towards the left. You'll encounter an obvious, large crack. Just to the right of the crack, find the start of this route.

Ascend on good ledges and pockets. Be very aware of loose rock and test holds before committing weight.


There are many solid trees to set up a TR anchor or various cracks up top to set up a gear anchor. Route has yet to be lead on gear.
