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.
P1: One of my favorite Tower pitches. Thin stemming provides the pump... and be sure your eyes are open wide for good placements. The anchors are out left after about 125 feet.
P2: Very thin crack climbing and a bit of route finding create the crux of the route. Watch for the "hidden hold" at mid pitch.
