Description Suggest change

The Main Wall is why you came to the Black Hills. Super steep sport climbing on great stone. Essentially every route is fantastic. Pick one and you likely won't be dissapointed.

Getting There Suggest change

Hike the trail into the canyon until you see the impressive overhanging wall on the right hand side of the canyon. If you miss it you're blind.
