Get your heart rate up by going on a rock climbing adventure
Cook County MN is home to the lowest point (Lake Superior) and the highest point (Eagle Mountain) in Minnesota. When the glaciers passed through decades ago they left behind beautiful rocks and cliffs, perfect for climbing on!
Climb a sea cliff rising straight out of Lake Superior or go straight up your favorite vista. Make a day out of it and explore the Boundary Waters by canoe and then climb up for an aerial perspective.
Rock Climbing in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness
When it comes to climbing, the Boundary Waters Canoe Area offers a unique adventure like no other. Imagine traveling into a wilderness only accessible by canoe and spending the day learning to climb rock surrounded by glacier lakes and rivers as far as the eye can see. This is what makes Canoeing to Climb so special.
Here, you can start the day with a morning paddle, weaving your way among a dozen islands or through flowing currents while leisurely taking in the landscape. Before, during, and after climbing, you are guaranteed to find towering palisades where you and your group can take in a beautiful panorama of the wilderness from above. Celebrating your victories may include a dip in the lake or a treat of wild blueberries. This is what the wilderness has to offer. Whether you are a beginner looking to learn or a seasoned climber, the Boundary Waters has something for you.
