The Durrance

June Voluntary Climbing Closure and Seasonal Raptor Closure MORE INFO >>>

Description 

A very nice route that deserves more traffic. Although short, it is quite fun.

Begin in the low angle crack just right of "Billie Bear Cranks the Rad". Delicate small stopper placements where the crack thins and the wall steepens will thrill the soul! Climb through the broken section to a double bolt anchor above "Billie Bear".

Getting There 

From the Devils Tower Visitors Center, follow the loop trail counterclockwise and head up through the boulder field to the slabs towards the shoulder leading up the base of the leaning column. The climb up is rather exposed, and many parties prefer to rope up on some of the terrain. There are some 5.2 moves for sure and plenty of exposed terrain.

Protection 

RP's, small to medium stoppers and a good head are required for this pitch.
