Station 13 as seen from atop Spire 1. The Council...

Description 

Station 13 is a very cool tall and somewhat slender spire (about 150 feet) that is separated from the rest of the Cathedral Spires. It is a good place to scope out other routes because it is a slight distance away. Look for it at the top of the Spire Two-Three gully.

Getting There 

Follow trail #4 to the north from the Cathedral Spires parking lot. When the trail junctions before the spires, do not take the climber's trail off to the right, but rather, continue up the hill to the left of the spires. Go around the back side and look for a tall slender spire that stands alone. While it is near to other rocks, it is definitely solitary at the same time.It has a distinctive chimney on the east face.

This route starts to the left of the conn route. It is on the north east face of the spire, the "uphill side any way". A bolt is visable from the from the ground at about 15 feet up, It is a burly homemade hanger, I belive that Ron placed for this bolt and the others, two or so.After the first bolt you climb a big easy crack that takes you to a little face section just up and left, with a bolt and some gear. From here the main goal is to get to the corner rt facing and climb the crack in back of...[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
