Misery is so named for the feeling one gets when attempting to climb here on the weekend. Ease of access and many good beginner climbs (along with some pretty hard routes) makes this a very popular area for groups.
To access Misery, head up the West bluff trail from the South until you see a freeway off ramp-style pull off. If you have reached Cleo's Ampitheater, you have gone too far.Follow this dirt trail to the top of the cliff.

Is the false perspective from the climber on the route or from those who say it looks too easy? Start in an inside corner on the center of the face to the left of the Pillow. Climb a crack through a small sloping roof to the top. This climb is a bit harder than it looks, but takes gear very well for a lead. ...[more] Browse More Classics in WI
