One of the Ten Pins. The Standard / Original Route is a Needles Classic. Bold and Steep on all sides there are no "easy" routes Queenpin.There has been quite a few new bolted routes put up recently on Queenpin. One to the left of the Original route and three on the East side facing Ceberus.

Getting There 

Located between Kingpin and Ceberus. The standard route is reached by following the gully to the right of Kingpin up past Kingpin to the base of Queenpin. The new routes are reached as you would Ceberus except you head up one gully sooner to reach the base of the East Face.

Off With Their Heads 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c  South Dakota : Custer State Park : ... : Queen Pin
Climb up the gully south of Super pin to end up at the base of Queen Pin on the east side facing between Queen Pin and Tricouni. This is the middle of the 3 new routes. Follow the bolts up the middles of the face. Not a bad route, you may want to clip the first bolt from the left as it is kinda weird from what I remember....[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
