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.

And if triple platinum means that only three people go there during any given year, then this place is gold, baby! This might soon change due to an explosion of new development that took place in the winters of 2012 and 2013. For years and years The Slim Shady Pillar stood alone. But now a second and third wave of development has created a plethora of new climbs ranging from fun moderates to uber-challenging 5.13 test pieces.

The hellacious hike is worth it. This area boasts long climbs with stout technique and powerful moves.

Getting There 

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.
