Ice Station Superior

Click to enlargeLong moderates your thing? This crag boasts the longest routes on the north shore of Lake Superior, with moderate lines up to 175m. Many of the routes start with waterfall ice and begin to feel alpine near the top. In addition, the crag faces away from the prevailing winds and so may be the place to go if your not into getting blasted by the usual NW wind in OB or T-Bay.
The River of Frozen Dreams is a one-of-a-kind classic in the region, and offers a pleasant way to spend an afternoon alternately wandering and climbing up moderate ice flows. In addition, many climbs offer fantastic views of Lake Superior and despite the short approach feel quite remote.
Note: It is advisable to use the clifftop access trail to avoid trespassing on the rail tracks.

Quotable Quotes

Unmitigated risk aversion is the new Puritanism; complete with witch hunts, funny outfits, and humorless preachers thundering doom. The name of the Deity is changed to Safety; the name of Satan is changed to Lawyer; but the object is the same: to suck the life out of life and tell you how to live it.
