The Railroad Amphitheater is a terrific climbing spot with easy access and fairly long, interesting routes. The north wall of the Amphitheater is overhanging and includes challenging routes like Catenary Crack, Cop-Out, Cop Ripper, and Jack the Ripper. The south wall includes Pine Tree Step-Across and Pine Tree Dihedral, both long, fun routes. Railroad Amphitheater is also home to Lumby Ridge, a series of climbs on the southeast ridge of the formation.
To get to the Railroad Amphitheater walk north along the railroad tracks from the South Shore parking lot. About 150 feet past the electric fence you will see the Amphitheater, sitting just off the tracks. Top-rope setup access can be found by going around either the north side or the south side of the formation.

A sure to be neo-classic this is my favorite line on the wall linking the meat of "Jack the Ripper" with the best part of "Cop Out".It starts with a tricky boulder problem and follows a thin seam to a no hands rest. Then an airy traverse into a perfect dihedral and through the roof on good holds....[more] Browse More Classics in WI
