A north-facing ~60ft bluff with a choice of clean cracks and slabs. The anorthosite rock is different than that of Palisade Head and feels more like granite. The routes are accessed by rapping off from the top.
From Highway 61 turn into County Road 6. Drive for 2 miles at which point you should see a Superior Hiking Trail parking lot (gravel pit) on the right. If you see the cemetary on the right, you've driven too far. Leave the car at the parking lot and walk another ~100 yards along County Rd. 6 towards the trailhead . One mile hike leads directly to the top of Section 13 cliffs.

Starting near the 'access gully', climb up the face and cracks to a fun juggy over hang. Establish yourself on the ledge, reach around the corner and feel for the finger crack and go! This is a blind placement if leading. Great exposure and strenous! Go do it!...[more] Browse More Classics in MN
