Tent Peg is a skinny spire uphill from Superpin. It and Superpin actually look fairly similar, but Tent Peg has cracks and enough other protectable features to make it comfortable for mortals.

Getting There 

Get out of your car and make the arduous 2 minute walk to the base of the spire.

Tent Peg 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b  SD : Custer State Park : ... : Tent Peg
This route starts at the high point between Superpin and Tent Peg. Climb the obvious wide crack. At the end of the crack, traverse right around to the other side of the spire. This is easy at first then more difficult (use the force if necessary--it worked for me). The route finishes up a short but unprotected face.Be mindful of the way your rope is running. You'll need to place a long runner when you least want to.A one rope rappel will get you back to the ground....[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
