Picture Rock is a not very often climbed spire near Totem Pole. It is a fairly wide spire compared to others in the area. The summit is a good spot to take pictures of neighboring areas, especially the Cathedral Spires.

Getting There 

Drive from Sylvan Lake towards the Ten Pins. Just after the tight hairpin curve (with a parking area) at the base of Totem Pole, a formation is on the east side (left) of the road. Look for a 'T' shaped crack next to the road and a chimney that starts to its left.

Climbing Season

For the Tenpins/Switchbacks area.

Weather station 5.5 miles from here

The T is obvious from the highway. Climb the crack, place some gear in the horizontal, then hope you don't fall before the summit....[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
