Description 

Generally shady and not that crowded. This is a couple of hundred feet down from the closed area. While not secluded, as the trail runs right across the top, you won't see many people if you sling shot the routes.


Getting There 

Park close to the boat launch. Hike up and right toward the Riverbluff Trail. The easiest way down is to set up your top rope and rap to the base.

Electric Stove Couch from below.

Electric Stove Couch 5.7 5a 15 V+ MVS 4b  WI : Interstate State Park : Picnic Area
This climb has a combination of crack and face moves. The features are discontinuous, but the moves are fun if not fluid. There are plenty of options to make the route harder, the most obvious being pulling the roof on crimps at the top. The 5.7 version skirts left of the roof and out the wide fists crack at the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in WI

The small column in the Picnic Area prow. It is easy to sling an anchor right over the top of this little column, and your rope will hang about in the middle of the face.

Nice job putting up this area. Can you provide some pics to reference?

Also, you and another guy are putting up duplicates of this area.

You might want to contact him and work together to put up the area under one section.
