Description 

Pawn is a spire near the Ten Pins that is famous for its signature route Patience. It has good rock and is worth a visit. Like most spires, it only require one pitch to summit.

Getting There 

Drive to a small pullout right in front of End Pin. Walk up the hill to the west for a short while. Pawn will be on your right as you walk west. Look for a bolted line with the first bolt 40 feet up! This is the Pawn.

Take your time (patience) and have fun. Fixed anchors at the t...[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
