Featured Route For Lion's Spire

Lioness 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  South Dakota : Custer State Park : ... : Lion's Spire
A long line of nearly perfect crystal pinching and bolt clipping. High step and reach for super good holds. Stalk down and crush tiny crystals before gaining some good rests. Climbers may have to follow paths of good holds to the left and right of the bolt line but the overall climbing does not wander too much. Probably one of the most perfect face climbs in the entire park. Get on it and let us hear you roar!...[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
