This route is tucked WAY back in the corner of the EBM wall, and often overlooked as people make their way down the trail. Don't be one of those unfortunate prospectors who misses out on their chance to do some unusual, interesting and very fun stemming and face climbing up this unique Spearfish Canyon route.


Right hand side of the wall. Look for this route by getting up on top of the blocky rock in front of the trail and working your way into the corner. 5th route from the right hand side of the wall.


9 bolts and closed shut anchors. BELAYER BEWARE! Keep your lead climber on a short leash while doing this climb. Too much slack might result in a ride that ends badly.

The bolts can easily be clipped from the chimney. This is how we climbed the route and it is the path of least resistance. The 9+ grade eliminates climbing options within the bolt line.
