Ice Climbing

The Needles aren't just for rock climbing anymore baby.

There are two very popular ice climbing areas in the Needles at Honeybear near Sylvan Lake and Palmer Creek on the flanks of Harney Peak. Less crowded and with longer and more complicated approaches than Spearfish Canyon. These are great places to enjoy a peaceful day of great moderate ice climbing.

Getting There

Complicated and spread out - look under rock directions.
