the route just to the right of cyclops. Traverse left on the ledge and finish on the right side of the eye where there is a wicked prison bar hold!

3 out of 5 stars Great view at the top

Be sure to turn around at the anchors and take in the beautiful view of Red Wing. The rock, as with the rest of Barn Bluff, is loose. Belayers should think about wearing a helmet.

5 out of 5 stars Good Climb!

Hold has broken off at the bottom, possibly a 5.10b/c now, route remains the same after the first 10 ft, but the start is a little tricky now!
