Location: SD : Custer State Park : Tenpins/Switchbacks : Superpin : Barber Route (5.10 X)

Comments: There are similar formations in abundant supply through out the southern Hills and there seems to be possibilities of other lines on the same formation. Why play into Mr. Barbers' theatrics for this one particular route? I haven't met any developers who don't condemn the modification of their work without their consent.

The route is classic because it is Mr. Barber's, it was spicey (now super spicey), and it is next to the road in the Park. Had Mr. Horning had the original FA without M... more >>

Comments: The route was climbed last year for the new guidebook. The rappel is somewhat standard for the area and functions quite well for the amount of traffic it has seen. Please keep in mind this is one of the original routes for the entire Black Hills and to modify for your own peace of mind would only devalue the work of the original first ascent party from 1936, even if they stood on someone's shoulder to get it done!

Comments: Anchors are located at the edge of the ramp, not in the crack. They would serve as great rap anchors off the top of Garfield, but are not located to serve as a belay station for climbing Garfield.

Comments: Gear:
(Camalots #00-#2 x 2, #3 x 1/Stoppers 1 set/MicroStoppers 2 sets/many runners, 2 ropes for rappel)

Notes on climb:
MUST DO ALL-TIME CLASSIC 5.10c/d *****

1)the route protects well, but you must place gear every time you get it, especially on pitch 2 & 3 (LK). be prepared to use the small stuff. bolts were recently replaced, thank Duane Martenson.

3)the traverse pt was not apparent, just below(approx 5-10' below) the overhanging diagonal crack on the headwall, traver... more >>
