Located on the sunny side of the bluff, this area features long and/or exposed airy aretes, and faces. It looks like there is the possibility for a few long trad lines as well.

Getting There 

Just around the corner from the rusty ring wall there is a very tall face with one bolted line, a little further around and a short scramble will get you up to the other three routes.

Climbing Season

For the The Fishin' Crag (Castle Rock South) area.

Head up the slab through some loose rock, some neat moves lead you into the small overhang on positive holds. After pulling over the small roof head out and left though the crux to gain a rest ledge...After clipping the next couple bolts you can either move out to the exposed arete (5.10/11), or head up direct(desperate feeling 5.12ish)....[more]   Browse More Classics in WI
