Description

Very shady all through out the year. Hence the name "Shadowlands". This area makes for ideal climbing conditions through out the summer months but climbs great all year. Make sure to bring your warm clothes for fall, spring and winter. The sun almost never hits the rock.

Getting There

From Cheyenne Crossing, drive west about 2 miles on highway 85 to a dirt pull off on the left side of the road. Cross the small wooden bridge across the creek and follow the trail up to the wall. Trail is clearly marked.

"4 miles past the sunshine climbing spot." Why are the directions to all the crags in spearfish terrible? Maybe locals don't want out of towners climbing here. (fair, we are annoying). For you people who don't already know where the crags are: Head west from Cheyenne Crossing on 85, drive 2.2 miles, park in a semicircular pull off on the left with a wooden bridge crossing the creek.

Buy the guide book and don't rely on a free web site for directions. Not only will you find the crags but you will also help support the local bolt fund. Just a thought. Aug 22, 2016

Fair enough. Although, if there are going to be directions here, might as well be to the place people are expecting to get to. Aug 26, 2016
