Description 

Very shady all through out the year. Hence the name "Shadowlands". This area makes for ideal climbing conditions through out the summer months but climbs great all year. Make sure to bring your warm clothes for fall, spring and winter. The sun almost never hits the rock.

Getting There 

From the Cheyenne Crossing drive about 4 miles past the Sunshine climbing spot to a dirt pull off on the left side of the road. You'll know you are there if there is a 2 foot wide wood bridge crossing the creek. Cross here and follow the trail up. Trail is clearly marked.

The premier 5.12a in Spearfish Canyon! If you have burned through your share of 5.11's and are wondering if you have what it takes to run with the big dogs of the big house then get your punk ass over to the Court House Wall and get on this tasty mono-festive bad boy that will either set you off or shut you down! A hard start followed by more hard climbing involving laybacks, underclings, crack technique and hidden holds will have you realizing that crime doesn't pay, but a lot of time over the ...[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
