This area lies at the very end of "The Dark Side" of the bluff. Although there is some steep climbing here, most of the routes are vertical to slabby. There's definitely a couple classics worth checking out. A large block sits on the ground that created the large triangle shaped roof. There's an old home-made bolt in the block that was placed after it fell.
Follow the main trail up the cement stairs from the parking lot. Keep right and hike up to the top. At the top of the trail hang a right at the "T" and keep going past the "Anadonia" area." Follow the trail all the way to the end of the "The Dark Side." Easily recognized by the large triangle shaped roof.

Head to the Big Roof area, and then backtrack (through the poison ivy) to the left until you find 3 bolted lines on a large flake. There is a faint trail from the main trail heading here also. It's perhaps 100 feet left of the Big Roof proper. This is the right hand line, and the most strenuous. Really, what you see is what you get. It's a burly lieback with bad feet until the obvious shelf, after which it eases up to 5.6 to the anchors. It really should get more traffic, it's a fun boulde...[more] Browse More Classics in MN
