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.
Do the amazing first pitch of One Way Sunset to get warmed up. From the bolted anchor traverse up and left into the beautiful right facing dihedral. After about 10 feet you can clip the first of six bolts. The next 60 feet is unrelenting stemming with no real hand holds or good rests. The bolts are very well placed and the falls would not be too bad. After the sixth bolt you can get a good rest out to the right on a nice little ledge. The upper part of the pitch is easier and protects with gear. Rappel from bolts back to the One Way Sunset anchor. We made it easy with a single 70m rope.
