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.
This route is 2 cracks left of “The Window” route on the East face of the Tower. The crack transitions from a slightly right facing corner to a slightly left facing corner.
P1. Aid up the thin crack until it is possible to lower left to reach the anchors for Animal Cracker Land route. 50 meters A2
P2. Get back into the same crack and continue on beaks until you reach the roofs. Aid out and over the left side of the roof on cams and build a belay at a small stance. 35 meters A3
P3-4. Continue up through the broken terrain until you reach the summit. 60 meters (total) 5.6
