L to R R to L Alpha
A small sport climbing area with easy access. Not a destination in & of itself, but some fun climbing nonetheless. Grades range from 5.7 to 5.11?.
From Spearfish and the start of 14A, go approximately 3 miles into the Canyon, look for a turnout / parking area on the right. The last time I was there the turnout was the 3rd one encountered on the drive.

This route will test your stemming skills. It appears to be an easy slab/dihedral till you get about halfway up and realize your fingertips are about to fall off from the awesome crimps and cracks on a slightly overhanging finish that can leave you breathless....[more] Browse More Classics in SD
