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.

We loved our day with Sylvan Rocks! This is a must-do in the Black Hills! We had 2 adults and our 2 kids, age 7 & 8. We had all climbed at a couple indoor gyms before. That experience wasn't necessary but this was the perfect next step. Brandon was super patient and encouraging, and made us feel really safe. My husband and kids are athletic, but I am not and my son gets nervous trying new things. I couldn't believe the wall we climbed! In our 4 hours, we each tried several different climbs plus more for the kids, in a spectacularly beautiful setting. Long sleeves and durable pants recommended or you will get scraped up a bit. The awesome grippy shoes make you feel like spiderman! It was definitely a highlight of our trip and left us wanting to go again! (also felt safe with Covid concerns - staff wore masks when inside with us and the rest of the time we were in open air with plenty of space).

Our guide Brandon was incredible and was so fun to share stories with! Getting to climb and rappel at Sylvan Lake was one of the most incredible and beautiful experiences I’ve ever had, there’s nothing else like it.If I ever decide to go rock climbing again, I will definitely choose Sylvan Rocks 💯💯.

I can’t say enough good things about Jeff and Brandon and the awesome experience I had climbing in Custer State Park! I learned so many cool new skills, achieved new goals, had great conversation, and felt super safe the whole time. Jeff also went out of his way to spend a couple additional hours with me to talk through all the cool things to do in Custer during my visit. Not to mention, he and Brandon have pinspired me to pursue van life part-time, and they have been providing me with helpful tips throughout my van search. Who would have thought so much could be achieved in one day? I highly recommend a visit to climb with them!
