Magnetic Rock. Pictured climbing the West Face.


This is a placeholder for Magnetic Rock. A large exposed glacial rock formation 1.5 miles from the Gunflint Trail on "Magetic Lake" hiking trail. I was unable to complete this send as I did not hike this trail with the proper gear. The photo is of me just playing around. The rating is a complete guess for the face in the photo. There are lots of possibilities here. If anyone has any information regarding this rock or climbing it please let me know.


Take the Gunflint Trail North to the "Magnetic Lake" trailhead on the Right side of road. Hike the trail 1.5 miles through some rocky, but well established terrain. Very fun approach!


Lots of cracks. Stoppers and Hexes smaller than fist size should work. Or some good crash pads.

I grew up a few miles from Magnetic Rock it's been done before. I don't know who got the FA, it would have been at least 15-20 years ago. Not sure if it's been bouldered yet though...

I climbed this thing a few days ago. It felt like 5.8 or so but who knows. I rapped off my buddies body wheight and set my rope in a notch at the top. Good fun!
