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.

Winger 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  SD : Spearfish Canyon : ... : Glamrock
Winger is awesome! Solid for the grade, this climb starts with a powerful roof sequence which quickly leads into more powerful climbing until about the 6th bolt. One more crux move under the roof and some trickery around it lead to the anchors. Good rests abound on this wonderful climb with comfortable clipping stances....[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
