The National Park Service asks that climbers choose not to climb the Tower during the month of June. The June voluntary climbing closure was selected as part of the Devils Tower Climbing Management Plan by a working group that included two climber organizations, two American Indian organizations, and other agency and local government representatives.
Climbers are strongly encouraged to consider enjoying the many other climbing options available in northeast Wyoming and the Black Hills area of South Dakota, during the month of June.
SEASONAL RAPTOR CLOSURE (Effective March 15)
A complete and regularly updated list of closed routes can be found on the park’s website.
Follow the Ramp around a prominent corner. You'll see a nice double finger crack in a dihedral(Soler), a bush crack(Todtmoos), and then this beauty.
Pitch 1 starts out as face climbing with good gear to a wide crack. Thrash up the wide crack(crux) to a semi-hanging belay. 165' 5.7
Pitch 2 climbs the beautiful hand and finger crack to the Meadows. This is one of the finest easy pitches on the tower. 150' 5.6
An easy but exposed scramble up the 4th class Meadows gains the top, and use the Meadows rappels to descend.
