Some of the sickest climbing in Spearfish Canyon can be found just fifteen minutes outside of town with a hike less than five minutes from the road.
With walls in league with Victoria Canyon, or Rifle Colorado, the massive climbs at The Stadium boast a go big or go home ethic. This is a crag with plenty of gnarly thrills to be had by all who dare to step up to the plate when the ump calls, "Batter Up!"
Let us take you out to the ball game...
Roughly 5 miles out of Spearfish heading east on Hwy 14A to a very large pull out on the right hand side of the road. If you are coming from Lead, get on Hwy 14A and travel west to Bridal Veil Falls. Botany Bay is less than a mile past the falls parking lot.
The Stadium is broken up into two sections, The Wall of Fame and The Dugout. The Wall of Fame is the top section of the crag which is filled with long, overhanging routes outfitted completely with fixed draws. Walking downhill on a rocky, not-so-obvious path leads to The Dugout which is the section of the crag that contains a few shorter climbs and the infamous, uber-long route known as Around The Horn.

Get ready to crimp and beg for the next jug!The second pitch gets you onto a bold, black slab that leads to one hard-ass pinc...[more] Browse More Classics in SD
