Flock to the Rock 2017
Duluth’s annual summer climbing rendezvous at Ely’s Peak, organized by the Duluth Climbers Coalition. A day of climbing, free and open to all ages and levels of climbing experience (or none at all). Local climbing organizations will have ropes set, safety equipment is provided and instructors will be on hand to belay and offer beta (that’s climber slang for “advice”). For more advanced climbers, there will be plenty of challenges and local guides to direct them to favorite climbs and boulders. In addition, Youth Outdoors-Duluth and Daytripper of Duluth will be there, leading bike tours of the area and with a youth-bike obstacle course.
Preregistration for the free bike tours (bikes included) is required; contact [email protected] to sign up.
Directions: Exit I-35 just south of Duluth at Midway Road exit. Travel southeast on Midway/Beck’s Road for just over two miles. Parking area on left just before bridge over railroad track. Easy 1/4 mile hike to crag. Note: this is a wilderness area, no facilities.
