About Lafayette & Summit:

Located down on the East Side of Milwaukee (just off of the lake front), this limestone wall can give you a quick "fix" if you can't get any place more substantial. It's a short wall, approximately 25ft tall and 50ft long, made to support a bridge around a bike path that follows the lake front. It's located, oddly enough, where Lafayette Ave. and Summit Ave. connect on the top of Lafayette Hill. Most of the routes/problems that are here are eliminates, but there's enough available to make it interesting.
Nearest town or city: Milwaukee
Directions: From Lincoln Memorial Drive, make a right on the road up Lafayette Hill (there's a Alterra Coffee there, as well as tennis courts). At the stop sign, make a left onto Lafayette Ave. Almost immediately, you hit Summit Ave, turn right and park. The wall is located under the bridge.
