Featured Route For Wasp Haven Buttress
Stinger on Wasp Haven Buttress.  Traversing right and up makes for a fun and sustained finish.

Stinger 5.11+ 7a 24 VIII 24 E4 6a  MN : Blue Mounds SP (Luverne) : ... : Wasp Haven Buttress
Stinger begins just left of an eight foot sapling near the taller right hand side of Wasp Haven Buttress' wall. Move straight up the lower slab to a short roof that runs across the right half of the face. Pull the roof using a good flat edge and a selection of testy sidepulls. Continue up either bailing left for easier terrain or traverse right then up to the highest point of the buttress (recommended). A little contrived but worth doing if you're in the area....[more]   Browse More Classics in MN
