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.
Climb up the face left of Soler to a first bolt and commit to Soler Eclipse. Technical face and arete climbing leads to the first crux - a reachy lieback move to a great hold over the obvious roof. Immediately afterwards there is another difficult crux that involves a "I wish my shoes had C4 rubber" move. This brings you to the first (hanging) belay (hidden from view until now).
Continue up on easier (5.10a) climbing to the top - follow the bolts: there are some sucker holds that will lead you right and into bad rock at one point.
