Great rock in the Ten Pins. Nice because it is not as easily seen from the road above as many of these spires are, however some of the routes are seen from the road below through the trees.

Getting There 

Best approached by taking trail on the downhill side of Hairy Pin. You will walk by Tricouni Nail (on your right) and come to some boulders. Someone Else's Peg is right there as you continue will stand out as a separate spire from the larger rock mass.

The lower crack is fairly easy climbing with great placement options. After climbing for about 25 feet you traverse to the left over a bulge and do a short traverse. This is a bit scary as there aren't too many gear options. Head up again after about 10 feet with good gear placements behind a flake. The crux for me was the face climbing which starts at about half way up the climb on top of the flakes. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in SD

Since they've cleared the trees, the rock is easily visible, and road gawkers abound. "How did you get down there?!"
