Description Suggest change

This area houses a freestanding pillar climb that looks like a miniature version of the Fang in Vail. There is also potential for hard mixed climbs, which people may or may not have already climbed.

Getting There Suggest change

The amphiteatre sits high on the east side of the canyon. To view it, head south into Spearfish Canyon. Very near the National Forest sign, look high on the left side of the canyon for a side canyon. The pillar is visible from the road. Bushwhack up the steep drainage into the side canyon - the approach takes about a half hour.
