Very shady all through out the year. Hence the name "Shadowlands". This area makes for ideal climbing conditions through out the summer months but climbs great all year. Make sure to bring your warm clothes for fall, spring and winter. The sun almost never hits the rock.
From the Cheyenne Crossing drive about 4 miles past the Sunshine climbing spot to a dirt pull off on the left side of the road. You'll know you are there if there is a 2 foot wide wood bridge crossing the creek. Cross here and follow the trail up. Trail is clearly marked.
Weather station 6.0 miles from here

This route is one long, powerful son-of-a-bee-otch! Starts on a slab with small holds and technical movement which leads to steep, powerful moves. Slim Shady only gets steeper and more powerful the higher you climb...it will make you want to stick Nine Inch Nails through both of your eyelids!And climb high you will! Your brain will be dead weight, and you won't be able to get your head on straight!This rap song goes on forever and ever and doesn't let up until the very last move at the anchors! ...[more] Browse More Classics in SD
