OK, here it is! One of Devils Lake best bouldering areas. This is not the largest area, but the problems here are classic and super fun. Well worth the hike for anyone who wants to get schooled by some of the best Devils Lake has to offer.
I don't know all the names, grades and FA's at this location. I'm basing what I post off of what I've climbed here, and also what friends who have developed and spent time in this area have told me. Please fill in any blanks that I have missed, I would love some feedback. Anyway, enjoy this beautiful and amazing Devils Lake bouldering area.
