This unmistakable spire is part of the Spire Five mass. Very short on the E side. Very tall on the W, 4/5 gully side. Pioneered by the Conns in 1953.

Getting There 

Hike up the 4/5 gully to reach the base of the W face.

A must do if you find yourself in the 4/5 gully. Very long and pleasing with a crux up high, protected by a bolt. Then either rap or try out the precarious summit! Be cautious around hollow flakes....[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
