Taylor's Falls (Wisconsin Side)

I'm headed to Taylor's Falls for some climbing this Sunday and would love to have some more company. I've got gear and rope to set one toprope and I have space in my car for two additional people. My plan is to depart Minneapolis at 8:30 am and arrive in TF around 9:30 am.  My mobile # is[masked] if other folks want to drive separate but meet up there.


It looks like the plan is to climb the WI side.  I will plan to be at the parking lot on MN side around 9:30.  If you want to grab a ride over so you don't have to buy a WI permit you're welcome to hop in.  It's probably most logical to set up some routes on the WI strip, but I wouldn't mind venturing over to the Sentinel area as well.

    Hey all - thanks for the good climbing despite the subpar weather. Hope everyone had a good time. If you're missing a helmet contact me. There was one left behind when we were packing up.

      Hi Ezequiel - The park is half in Minnesota and half in Wisconsin. The plan was to meet up at 9:30 in the parking lot on the Minnesota side and then go over to the Wisconsin side to climb. To get to the Wisconsin side you drive over the river on the bridge and take the first exit. Then you turn right on Park Rd to get into the park. The area where we will set up to start is called the Wisconsin strip. If you can't find us, please call me on my mobile phone at[masked] and I will come find you. :-)

    It rained all night and it is still coming pretty wet here in Marine on st croix where I live. Not sure if it rained in the cities, but expect it to be very wet.

    I am carpooling and have 2 spots left in my car. We are meeting at the Holiday station on the corner of 35w and hwy 96 at 8:15.

    September 14, 2013

    • Kevin C

      Late notice, but I'll stop by the Holiday on my way up if you don't mind carpooling with 1 more.

    Hi I am from Mexico and just got in Eden Prairie for work this week... and would definitely like to join, I only have a harness and shoes, for light travel ... may I join you?

    September 14, 2013

    • Mike

      Hi Ezequiel - you are totally welcome to join us. There should be plenty of people with gear and ropes so if you've got harness and shoes you should be set.

      September 14, 2013

    • Ezequiel

      Great! I'll see you there!

      September 15, 2013

  • Mike

    I am planning to meet Eva at the parking lot of the target on central ave just south of 694 at 8:40. I've got one more spot in the car if someone else wants to ride along. Please reply here if you want to claim the spot.

    September 14, 2013

  • Ezequiel

    also if any tips for going out in Minneapolis or Eden prairie, would be appreciated... jejeje

    September 14, 2013

  • Kevin C

    I just decided to join in! I have enough stuff for another 2 toprope setups if we need them. Is anybody departing Minneapolis with room for one more? I can also drive, if someone want's to carpool. Text or call me[masked]

    Hey! my boyfriend, John, and I are interested in checking out outdoor climbing. I'm a novice but John has been outdoor climbing several times. would love to meet some people and have a group to go with!

    September 11, 2013

    • Mike

      I've got an extra harness I could bring along. I'm not aware of shoe rental at VE or Midwest but it looks like the outdoor rec at U of M rents shoes: http://www.recwell.um...­. You could always climb in tennis shoes, but climbing shoes definitely help. ;-)

      September 13, 2013

    • Allison J.

      If you could bring your harness that'd be great. VE in st. paul does rentals but they won't be open in time. I'll just improvise with other shoes! We'll meet you on the MN side at 9:30 and then follow you over, we'll have to leave earlier so can't ride with you. Looking forward to it!!

      September 14, 2013

  • Matt H.

    I'll be up there but we'll be doing some trad. We'll probably cross paths though!

    September 11, 2013

    • Mike

      I'd be up for WI side. Did you have a particular area in mind? I wouldn't mind hitting Sentinel, but I don't know if that area would be great for a group.

      September 12, 2013
