Minnehaha (John H. Shields Park)
Driving Distance: 10 min (4.3 mi)
Difficulty: climbs of all difficulty (majority of top roping concentrated in the 5.6-5.10 range)
Description: Great for Top Roping and Bouldering, however trad and (minimal) sport also available. No parking permits are needed. Due to the location and close density of climbs, this place makes for a good quick afternoon outing or an all day play around on the rocks with friends. Great to bring first time and newer outdoor climbers, while saving a few fun challenges for the well versed.
Note to top ropers: long slings are beneficial for building anchors on lots of the main wall climbs
