Description 

As the name implies this wall faces west/southwest. The wall wall grow to a height of 100+' very quickly as one descends the trail from after leaving the old two track road. There are a handfull of climbs on the first section of cliff you will encounter. The rock tends to be steeper slabs and the exfoliated nature of Raspberry Rocks can be quite pronouced in this area. There is potential for more new routing on this section of the formation.

Getting There 

This is the first section of cliff you will encounter on your right side as you descend the single track trail from the old two track road. Wander thru the the talus to base of climbs.

Crux is pulling the small roof about 15' up.Marginal gear here - done clean on FA-however a fall would be a deck on a ledge. Much thought was given about this bolt- this is an Amazing first lead for breaking into the 5.8 trad the bolt allows piece of mind for the new leader. The rest of route is 5.7ishAwesome finger-hand crack follows crux!!!Legend has it the late Dan Crain was working this line before his untimely passing....[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
