Description 

This is a great place for the intermediate climber. Tons of good routes from 5.10 to 5.12.


Getting There 

To get here, go down the canyon about 20 miles past a log hotel for tourists that is on the right, go past a bridge, then you will come to a pond and a dam, park here just before the dam. Walk across the dam and next to the pond. Follow this trail for about 20 minutes or so and you will come to the first climbs.

Dead Residents 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b  SD : Spearfish Canyon : ... : The Wall of Conclusion
Tucked way back in the canyon, beyond what most capable climbers are willing to hike is one of the best 5.10+ climbs that Spearfish Canyon has to offer. This climb is just a bit on the overhung side of the after life, and just like any worthwhile zombie movie, the sustained nature of this climb keeps those brain eating bastards coming at ya. Pocket after pocket and crack after crack you'll be kept on your toes. Your arms get pumped like the shotgun you'll need to keep firing in order to keep you...[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
