Keeping your balance is crucial for this micro-epic moderate, that utilizes a right hand crack and some not so easy to see left hand crimps and pockets. This is a fun route that keeps you guessing and keeps you on your toes - literally.


This climb is found in the Spearfish Canyon Limestone guidebook. If you use the regular Blue Sky trail, which would take you past the Lord of the Flies Wall and the Scavenger wall as you make your way north, Night Train is the fourth route you would come to on the Iron Horse Wall. It's easily identifiable from its long, yellow crack.


5 bolts with closed shut anchors. Mental Note! Careful climbers who want more route to romp on can clip the anchors -with a regular sized quickdraw- and take off climbing towards the anchors on the route to the left.
