Description

A neat, little area with fresh routes, that have been in the works for as long as we can remember, because they were once totally forgotten about. Back in the good old days (when Bruce Junek was still writing a guidebook) some local guys rapped down the face of this wall, placed a few sets of anchors...and then got busy doing something else.

Fifteen years later I found myself with nothing to do and a strange, uncontrollably desire to finish what they started. After a few weeks of cleaning (with Mike Cronin's blessing) I found myself taking the ride on some pretty sick routes that turned out to be quite a bit harder than I initially expected.

Dubbed "The Wall of Shame" simply because it is a shame that these routes were not finished sooner, this little wall is turning out to be a pretty good addition to an area that already holds a high concentration of Taster's Choice served up with the buttery sickness.

Procrastination built this nation. More routes will be on the way if myself (or anyone else) feels the motivation. We hope the results will motivate you to visit this part of Spearfish Canyon more.

Getting There

Located between The Crossroads and The Bradyism Wall. After the long hike up to Big Picture Gully, turn right and bypass The Crossroads. Walk around the corner and hike up a short trail intertwined with the root system of a very large pine tree.
