Description

A long, drawn out and very worth-while experience. This is a fabulous example of a classic canyon moderate line that will allow you to touch the sky. Enjoy as a warm-up. Intermediate climbers can expect to see their skills brought up to the next level of excellence on this one. Fun, thoughtful movement on varied holds leads to a view of one of the most beautiful vistas Spearfish Canyon has to offer.

Location

5th route from the left on the left-most wall at the Indecent Exposure Crag. Just to the right of the black arete. Tasting Time is located on a black, slabby face that can be seen right away when one first hikes into the Indecent Exposure area. Start on some stoney steps to the left of a hillside that leads to another five ten known as Base Camp.

Protection

Take at least a dozen draws, this route is really, really long. This route has open shuts.

Easier climbing with a punctuated crux after bolt 6 or 7. Apr 28, 2011

very sustained and sequential. the defined crux for me was stepping into a bad left foot and pulling with a left hand sidepull / right hand crimp, while bumping up a high right foot and going for a horizontal slot right under the 6th or 7th bolt. i wasn't able to make the move on lead. after getting through that section the climb doesn't really let up, but transitions from pockets to balance intensive crimpy climbing. fun and thought provoking route for sure. helps to have a reach.
