A long, drawn out and very worth-while experience. This is a fabulous example of a classic canyon moderate line that will allow you to touch the sky as you either get in your warm-up or take your intermediate grade climbing to the next level of excellence. Fun, thoughtful movement on varied holds leads to a view of one of the most beautiful vistas Spearfish Canyon has to offer.


Tasting Time is located on a black, slabby face that can be seen right away when one first hikes into the Indecent Exposure area. Start on some stone steps. The hacked up tree growing parallel to the rock is completely in bounds.


Take at least a dozen draws, this route is really, really long. This route has open shuts.

Easier climbing with a punctuated crux after bolt 6 or 7.

very sustained and sequential. the defined crux for me was stepping into a bad left foot and pulling with a left hand sidepull / right hand crimp, while bumping up a high right foot and going for a horizontal slot right under the 6th or 7th bolt. i wasn't able to make the move on lead. after getting through that section the climb doesn't really let up, but transitions from pockets to balance intensive crimpy climbing. fun and thought provoking route for sure. helps to have a reach.
