On your way towards Harney, shortly past the creek, are a few colorful and steep spires on the N side of the trail. Their names are unknown, but they have certainly been done before.

Getting There 

Hike the Harney trail #9 from Sylvan Lake. Pass the creek/trail junction and hike for another minute or so. Keep your eyes on the left side of the trail. 30 min.

Stunning SW crack that has probably been ogled by every climber that hiked to Harney. Start in wide crack that quickly pinches to fingers. Crux is getting through the gold rock to the big ledge. Stays real to the end. Rock is pretty good overall, some hollow spots and small friable flakes keeps things exciting....[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
