Description 

L-Buttress is located in one of the more secluded locations in Blue Mounds, the Mini Fortress Area. Some of the advantages of this piece of rock include shade, lack of people (if you're into that), good anchors at the top, good top/bottom access, and a flat, dirt bottom that accommodates a sling-shot belayer well due to the absence of plant life overgrowth. It contains some fun climbs for the intermediate climber.

Getting There 

Coming from the Prairie Walls cliff line, stick to the trail going north for a about a quarter mile (guess.) The woods will open up for a bit. After you get back into the woods again, you're there.

Loose Rock goes straight up the face, approximately ten feet to the right of Hammer. Mantle your way up onto the good ledge about ten feet off the ground and cruise the rest of the way to the top on consistent 5.8 climbing. Balancy moves with mediocre holds comprise most of the climbing, which make it interesting and thoughtful. The chunks of loose rock the name refers to are near the top, but they didn't come off for me and are probably avoidable. Be careful of what you're cranking on as yo...[more]   Browse More Classics in MN
