Tent Peg is a skinny spire uphill from Superpin. It and Superpin actually look fairly similar, but Tent Peg has cracks and enough other protectable features to make it comfortable for mortals.

Getting There 

Get out of your car and make the arduous 2 minute walk to the base of the spire.

You'll need to place a long runner when you least want to.A one rope rappel will get you back to the ground....[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
