Looking at a 5.7 crack with Nick

Looking for some information for my road trip west, and I have some Dakota questions. Which regional forum do they fit in?

Insurrection, 5.14c.  Photo Adam Sanders.

I would put it in CO & Rocky Mtn Region, but it doesn't really matter. If you put it in the wrong forum, it might get moved, but probably not.

hi

This brings up a point. I would put them in the with the Midwest, and also add Illinois, Iowa and Michigan to that list as well.

And why Texas and OK are in with us in the Midwest is always baffling to me....

Perhaps they could add a forum called "Undesirables" or "We're Sorry" for all the states that have very limited climbing.

I'm from Rapid City and now live in Wisconsin. The Black Hills are not an 'undesirable'. And I laugh every time someone says, "Oh, you're from Dakota" or "What is it like in the Dakotas?" I know we only have one U.S. Representative, but SOUTH Dakota is it's own state, not a territory anymore! West river (west of the Missouri) doesn't feel very much like part of the midwest...

But it needs to be clear to which forum we should post about these areas!

What do you call a good looking person in North Dakota? A tourist. Ha!

It was meant for Illinois, Iowa, and Michigan, I should have been clearer. I have taken a few trips to the Black Hills and no means is it undesirable, I agree with you 100%. I was talking about the lack of rock climbing available in the aforementioned states, failed joke.

I suppose that it would be most appropriate to have a couple regions like Southern and Northern Plains. But if we did that, it would make more sense to put Hueco into Southwest Desert, and Arkansas into the Southeast. Western Montana could be in the Rockies region, and Eastern Montana would be Northern Plains. But then, would So-Ill be in Northern Plains, because Illinois is midwestern, or would we classify it as Southeast because of its sandstone?

I love different geographical boundaries.

I am from South Dakota and live in the Black Hills. I will give you North Dakota as an undesirable but leave South Dakota out. We have well over 2000 established routes in the Black Hills. 700+ limestone sport routes, and 1500+ granite routes. Not to mention we are 1.5 hrs from Devils Tower.
I feel that the Dakotas should be listed in the same sections at WY (which ever that is).
There will be two new guides out early summer for all the climbing in the hills minus Custer State Park. Should be a good summer, if it ever stops snowing!

Texas I get.. It's kind of southwesty but really its own place. But Oklahoma? Dude, it screams midwest!
