A good place to go on a sunny day. There is only a small cluster of routes here but in my opinion its well worth the trip. The crag is located up from the river in a wooded area. If you are unfortunate enough to find the climbs you wanted to do occupied you continue down the trail and reach Sentinel Area.
There are multiple options for reaching this area. I park at the Lake o' the Dallies parking area. From the parking lot you cross the steet and go past a playground (with an artifical boulder for kids to climb on). Continue by the north end of the lake. As the trail forks take the right trail (Echo Canyon Trail). After passing a small pond and some cliff to your left, look for a rock formation that looks like a human face. Many of the climbs lie to the left around this face. There is an old paved path that leads a couple feet toward the river here as well, that serves as another good landmark for those that don't recognize faces in rock right away.

This route is a grunter. The first crux is right off the ground and a second about 10 feet from the top. The moves aren't classic, but will make you think. The first crux is technical, while the higher crux requires a bit of power. Once you find the start is is pretty hard to get off route....[more] Browse More Classics in WI
