Description 

If you like beautiful views of granite domes, moderate approaches, mixed climbs that average 100 feet, & no crowds- this might be the area for you!
Located in the Black Elk Wilderness- New Domentions started seeing development in the 80's by Brent Kertzman and Mike Engle. However, the area continues to evolve with the eyes of a newer generation. Rock quality varies from bullet proof to pretty darn good- depending on which way the route faces. With more traffic routes will clean up nicely- (Remember I mentioned no crowds??!!!)

Getting There 

From Keystone Drive to the Iron Mountain Picnic Area via Iron Mountain Road/Senic U.S. Hwy 16A W. - aka Pig Tail Bridge Road.
From here you will be entering the Black Elk Wilnerness Area on The Centennial Trail Bypass (Trail 89b) . Please register your party at the trailhead kiosk.
Follow 89b after about a half a mile there will be a fork- stay oto the right- in 800' start looking for a climbers trail and a fallen fence post on your left-SW. In about 500 feet you will reach the New Domentions Area.

Climbing Season

For the The Needles Of Rushmore area.

Weather station 2.3 miles from here

Seams Like a Dream 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b  South Dakota : The Needles Of Rushmore : New Domentions
This was the first route established in the Domensions and is an absolute Black Hills Classic!! A beautiful splitter finger crack that starts as a low angle slab and gradually gets steeper. Literally swallows gear anywhere you want to place it. No real crux just solid 5.7 the whole way....[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
