Shadow Lands - Wall of Fabeled Creatures Area - Do...


The Tunnel Wall is a small area that holds a handful of routes ranging from the great warmup, Doorf 5.9, to some burly steep climbs like Stress Test 5.12a and French Pinchler 5.13b.
The area can be quite cool due to a constant breeze from the tunnel.

Getting There 

Walk left on the access trail for about 3 minutes until you encounter the obvious old mine tunnel covered by a wooden door.

Doorf 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a  South Dakota : Spearfish Canyon : ... : Tunnel Wall
Climbing through the first three bolts is the easiest portion of the route. Starts directly under first bolt and follows the big pockets up and to the right. The crux of the route is from the third bolt to the roof. Climb the chalked crimps and sidepulls to the base of the roof. Awesome bolt placements. Super protected. Great warm up route....[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota

I dropped in yesterday with my family and jumped on a route next to the second tunnel door (after tunnel wall maybe?) - leftmost of 3 routes. What was that route/rating? Looks not to hard until you jump on it, cruxy start and hard between bolts 2&3 and 3&4 then eases up toward the chains.
