White boys can't jump...but they can sure rap! (Rap bolt that is!)
Deep within the bowels of the northen slopes between the Darkside and the Shadowlands lies Spearfish Canyon's only triple platinum selling area.
You can access this stellar climbing area from either the Shadowlands or The Darkside. Either way, be prepared to hike. If you hiked up the trail that leads to The Dark Side, turn right and start treking. If you hiked up The Shadowlands trail, turn left and proceed to put one foot in front of the other. You'll know you have arrived at the Slim Shady Area when you come across a very tall pillar, completely detached from the main wall, that appears like the hull of an ocean liner when viewed from the trail.
