Exploratory Bolting

Peter G. and I wanted to see if we could bolt any new routes on the tall cliffs along the St, Croix just north of Hudson. The cliffs are high - 70-90' - but much of the rock is barely consolidated sugar sand. There are layers of harder rock that take bolts. We thought we'd have to bring gear to aid climb and bolt from the bottom. But most of the stuff we brought to do that, wouldn't work.

A 2 minute slideshow of our trip.
