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.

For those about to DYNO, we salute you! It is recommended that you stickclip the first two bolts of this climb if you have never done it before. Even better, have a local who knows the dyno move for the opening sequence show you how it's done. Be prepared for a fall on your way to the third bolt while doing a stand-up sequence that is a bit difficult due to a secret, hidden hold.
