Featured Route For TOWERS OF TEETH
Morannon on Tower of Teeth

The Outer Shadow aka Morannon 5.8- 5b 16 VI- 14 VS 4c  SD : Custer State Park : ... : EPHEL DUATH
A steep and balancy start that leads to a beautiful face crawling out of the trees with great positioning and nice exposure. One of the nicest belay ledges on the entire formation! A 70M gets you to the ground with a bit to spare, so use caution when descending....[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
