Devils Tower Blitz

  • 2 Day Devils Tower Blitz

    The two-day Devils Tower Blitz course gives you a great shot at reaching the summit of Devils Tower. On this course, we will spend a day climbing together to make sure that you are climbing at the ability required to summit Devils Tower. Your guide will focus on climbing efficiently in a multi-pitch setting. The first day of this course takes place as an eight-hour guide day in Custer State Park, South Dakota, although the day may be shorter if we cover the needed skills and YOU choose to save energy for the main event. At the end of the first day, your guide will make an honest assessment of your abilities, and decide whether or not a summit attempt is feasible for your skill level. If it is decided that a summit attempt will be made, on the second day of your package, you will meet your guide at Devils Tower National Monument EARLY (sometimes as early as 3:30 am), and push for a summit. Early start times are crucial to avoid the crowds, as well as extremely high temperatures experienced at Devils Tower. If your guide decides that a summit attempt is not feasible, you will be able to spend a second day climbing in Custer State Park or Mount Rushmore National Memorial.

    This course is great for those who have spent time in rock climbing gyms, as well as those who have a little outdoor climbing experience. This course may be suitable for you if you enjoy a serious physical challenge, and are willing to learn a lot of new skills in a very short period of time.

Sylvan Rocks is awesome! When they say "Do something you never imagined you could!" on the website, they mean it! The single pitch AMGA guides Ryan and Ben were fantastic and I was able to summit multiple routes on my first attempt ever at climbing outdoors. I cannot recommend the climbing school enough as a fantastic addition to any trip to the Black Hills.

I was nervous about booking the 8 hour for my family teens 13,15 and 15. But it was the perfect amount of time. Gabe and Zane were knowledgeable and fun. Honestly if you can afford the longer climb it’s really the best, because the active climb time is not 8 hours there breaks for water, rest, snacks and game plan time so really in order to get the most out of your day you really need the 8 hours.
