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.

Needles and Pins 5.10a MN : Barn Bluff (Red Wing) : Large Roof Area
Probably one of my favorite 10s at Barn Bluff. Needles and Pins is sustained 10a climbing for the majority of the climb. Start below a small overhang. Move right past the overhang, clipping two bolts along the way. Climb a somewhat slabby and run out (by Red Wing standards) section to the next bolt. Continue past this to more vertical rock to the left and gain the anchors.* RCM&W #126, p. 140....[more] Browse More Classics in MN
