Been on the road the past six months and now find myself headed into the Dakotas and Montana! Let me know when and where your down to climb! I plan to head into the Black Hills and hope to climb in the Needles and Rushmore. Never been in any of these states before so let me know if you have any advise (even if your not able to meet up) exp on where to camp for free. I am now projecting 12's sport and comfortably lead 10's on gear tho I am down to climb anything! Stoke is high! 

Anyone out there around Bozeman want to get out and climb in the area in a few weeks? 

Will head south thru Wyoming in August and would be down to climb in the Wind's or Vedawoo. Hit me up!

Im gonna be heading to devils tower for 4-5 days if your interested. But i spent some time in the needles a month ago. Only climbed in Custer state park area. Conn Diagonal (5.7) is the best route I've ever done and id highly recommend spending time in the cathedral spires. Having a guide book for the area is almost mandatory imo as most of the routes are difficult to find

Hey all! I live down in Custer so am always down to climb in the Needles,  both Custer State Park and Rushmore sides of things.  I pm'd you Samuel and texted you Journie.  Anyone else hit me up at 9I4 924978O. I have guidebooks for both areas and plenty of gear, and am typically down to climb evenings Mon-Thu and any time Fri-Sun.

As for general recommendations:  definitely support Conn Diagonal, in the same area you can hit Kamp's/Classic Crack, Sex Never Did This To My Hands, and Cold Feet which are also all amazing routes.  Cerberus/Tricouni Nail is classic Needles climbing including the simulrap.  Needles Eye/Threading the Needle are great routes on an awesome formation that really give you a taste of Custer State Park spice (though if you are here during Sturgis probably best to avoid routes so close to the road).  On the Rushmore side of things Garfield Goes to Washington is a beautiful three pitch adventure as well.

I spent the other week at Devil's Tower and it was a killer time! You should definitely go but I have now made my way further south into Colorado. Let me know if you make it down this way and want to climb in CO or southern WY! 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
