Taster's Wall Rock Climbing
The only words you gotta know!
The Taster's Wall is a delectable little area that features a three course meal of high quality routes that all share the same start on what appears to be a pile of choss.
The inititial, first glance can be decieving. The routes are accessed by walking up a set of stone stairs on the right side of this purple, chossy pile. There is no need to worry, despite the ugly appearance the initial approach is solid and quite safe.
All three routes are accessed by traversing from the right to a bolt high up on the wall. Each climb has you working your way over a killer roof with a series of mondo-deep pockets where you can clip a permanent draw.
Once you've clipped in and feel safe, do the world's hardest pull-up and choose your own adventure. All three routes share the same start which leads to a pleasurable slab. From the slab go left, staight up or to the right to sets of bolts on a tasty headwall. All three routes may have the exact same start but they all have a diffent style and flavor for strong men and women with a well trained palet for awesome climbing.
The Taster's Wall is located in between the Assassin Wall and Yippey-Kiy-Yay. Don't walk past this small, but important area without tasting at least one or two of the delicacies it has to offer.

This route is soooo Taster's Choice, man! Hip Kidz is the left-most route on the wall and one of the best 5.11a limestone climbs I have ever laid hands on. Traverse in from the right and pull the roof with the mondo mega-pockets. Get yourself orientated on the slab and head left. There is a bit of scary distance on the slab feature between the fourth and fifth bolt. This area requires some fine movements with a bit of a tippy-toeing traverse, but after that, this fun as hell route is nothing mor...[more] Browse More Classics in South Dakota
