Devil's Tower, Wyoming

OK, here it is: Come join us for a great climbing and fun weekend or long-weekend at Devil's Tower, WY, the place we all want to go and get some spectacular trad done.

I will be heading up on Thursday morning, 18th to get well ensconced for climbing, Friday, Sat, Sun and Mon and head back Monday evening.

There is always debate about camping options here but I have gone, based on some frequent trippers beta for thew KOA, right at the Park entrance. I have booked one spot for climbing partners but there is lots of availability still. Chose KOA, very good site and we can all get together easily for breakfast, climbing partnering and dinner. (KOA has great amenities, small store and usually nice people running the place).

This is a place for sustained, multipitch trad from 5.7 up, so leaders should know their stuff and seconds too; it is really a venue for climbing teams that know each other"s skill level well.

But an awesome place that must be seen and experienced.

It will be hot but so will Boulder!

      I was there as well and I didn't meet anyone from the meetup group either! Climbed Durrence on Saturday (after being rained out on Friday!) It was a great climb!

    Hello! Any leaders looking for a cleaner at the tower this weekend?Most my experience is cleaning trad. I did Walt Bailey route at devils tower last year. Comfortable on 5.9, can do 5.10s with sound effects. Stubborn and would rather leave my arm than gear behind. Keep it fun tho! I'm interested in going last min here since I have a meeting in WY monday.

    Time to start packing - this will be so much fun after months of planning and a large group! Everyone should post the day on summit and the route.

    I summited Devils tower 3 times, but that was a lifetime ago. Although i still climb, I have not done anything that challenging in a while. Four years ago, I was Dxx'd with breast cancer. As a means of motivating me to heal, I sent Frank (Devils Tower lodge lead climbing guide), something of extreme sentimental value and asked him to place it at the top, so that someday, after my recovery, I could climb up and retreive it. I would love this to be the year! I just got back from Thailand, where I did a little bit of climbing in Railay and actually felt really strong. Under my present ability level, I can hold my own on up to a 5.8 trad route. Reading your posts is motivating me so much!! I think it's time to go get my talisman.

      I am cozily ensconced in the balcony of my face
      Looking out over the whole darn countryside, a beacon of satisfaction
      I am. I'll not trade places with a king. Here I am then, continuing but ever beginning
      My perennial voyage....
