Description 

Right of the Cyclops Area, another south facing wall of the bluff. This area is facing the sun and climbable on warm/dry winter days. Aptly named as the Winter Wall.


Getting There 

Follow the main trail up to where it T's. When you see the wall, look for the obvious thin crack which is BarnBurner. This is the right end of the Winter Wall. This area extends about 250' feet west (left) to the scree pile.

Chinese Freedom 5.11d 7a 24 VIII E5 6a  MN : Barn Bluff (Red Wing) : Winter Wall
Chinese Freedom is one of the best climbs at Red Wing, offering great technical climbing, bomber rock(for MN dolomite, that is), and two back to back cruxes that couldn't be more different in character. Twenty feet of crimpy climbing brings you to the cruxes. The first is a delicate, improbable cross through off a flat undercling sloper. The sloper can't really be grasped, just pushed up on by standing up, and crossing through seems ridiculous until you finally commit and go for it. Many p...[more]   Browse More Classics in MN
