This route index is designed for climbers who happen to be stuck in the Mankato Area. The climbing here is by no means worth a trip from any other destination, and these entries are merely a means to connect local climbers with the insignificant rocks that do reside here.

With all that said, some of these boulder problems are pretty great! So bring a brush and enjoy yourself. You can expect to never run into any other climbers unless the Mankato Climbing Team is out for a session!

Zot V3+ 6A+  MN : * Bouldering : ... : Zot Boulders
The route comes straight out the overhang and then up the face on the East (right) side of the boulder. Use a spotter because one crux is late in the game. Probably Mankato's best boulder problem.

Thanks for adding all the ice routes Brendan! My buddy and I may try to get out once more this season if it cools down again. If so, we'll give you a heads up.
