Description

This wall is the main wall at Raspberry Rocks. It faces west/northwest. There is a substantial boulder field below this wall. Near the center of this wall is a giant tiered overhang. This wall is home to the majority of the routes at Raspberry Rocks. This is one of the steepest and longest walls we have in the Black Hills. There are a number of corners, aretes, cracks and overhangs on this wall. There are no other cliffs in the Black Hills that are so symmetrically cleaved. This area is similar to Index Town Walls in Washington State or many of the crags in Boulder Canyon, Colorado. Most routes have fixed anchors for rappel purposes. This cliff is in the shade in the morning and gets sunshine after 2:00PM during the summer. Several routes not to be missed are Rocking Raspberries 5.9, Somewhere East of Fresno 5.10c, Indian Summer 5.10c, Frosted Red Raspberry Pop Tarts 5.10d, Left Face of Eve 5.11b and The Horn Route 5.10b.

Getting There

Use the standard approach described on the front page for Raspberry Rocks. Follow the faint trail until it leads into the boulder field. At that point the main attraction will be quite evident. Wander through the talus staying out away from the wall a bit. Find your route and work through the boulders to the base of the climb.
