Description

Prodigal Son is an obvious spire when driving down SD HWY 87 South towards Sylvan lake Lodge. This spire is hard to miss. Just pass the campground before the switchbacks. Easy way to access now. There are 3 obvious gravel turnoffs go to the 3rd one when heading towards Sylvan lake pull into here. Drive all the way up to an open area and park. Minor hike in gets you to the base. There are 4 Other routes on and around this formation. 3 being extremely well bolted. All with new anchors. 2 trad climbs one that climbs to a bolt then some gear in a bulge to an anchor. The other is a nice horizontal crack that leads to a new set up SS chain anchors on the backside. Any info would be great!

Getting There

From 16a turn left onto Highway 87 South towards Sylvan lake ( via Sylvan lake exit) Drive for about 3 miles and this spire will be poking out above the trees.
