Description 

Located on the lower south east side of Split Dome lies a majestic corridor embedded between steep towering walls. Please be mindful to Leave No Trace as this area is located in a pristine wilderness area.

Getting There 

Approach as if heading to Split Dome. Hike past the gully that separates Happiness is Water and Split Dome and head east for roughly 300ft approaching the south-east corner of the major formation until you arrive at a picturesque corridor in between steep towering walls to the north and south. On the north wall you will see a obvious overhanging splitter crack. If you end up at the creek you have gone to far.

Bring a full tank of gas and a match on this one. Blast your way up and through the steep overhanging splitter into the wide crack and Jam and stem your way to the top. Easy gear anchor and great belay stance....[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
