I was wondering how far Mississippi Palisades from Homer/Lockport/Orland and what kind of rack should I bring.

It is about the same distance to Devil's Lake from the South Side. The place is somewhat of a chosspile. What kind of gear to bring? Bring all of it.

cams are handy, but passive gear is essential at palisades. Tri-cams seem to work really great, esspecially in the pocketed limestone. But it is chossy so be carefull of placing gear in loose stone. But its a greatplace to climb for being reatively close. Enjoy the park
