Agawa Canyon Area
Crag: Agawa Canyon
Rating: WI2-3, 15m
Location: Agawa Canyon, Mile 110.5E. To access these climbs, climb up Whipperwill and scramble east up the cliff, keeping the rock face on your left. All climbs face south and make for a full day's outing, topping out on the summit to gain spectacular views of the canyon, looking west, as it terminates into Lake Superior.
Belay from the lower trees, on any of the 3 variations, of this 15m wide wall, ranging from thin verglas on the left, to thick blue-green buldging pillars on the right. Climb up to the slinged pines. Rap from here or belay here and continue up and to the east to gain the next climbs.
