Summit the Tower and enjoy the power and profound beauty

If you want to stand atop Devils Tower to enjoy the power and beauty found there, one of our Devils Tower Blitz packages is right for you! From the uber-classic Durrance route to the challenge of Soler Crack and beyond, we work with you to fulfill your rock climbing goals. We find that if a person really wants to do something, they will go to extraordinary measures to make it happen. That desire is what gets people to the summit of Devils Tower National Monument in Wyoming.

Whether you are a new or experienced climber, if you have the desire and are willing to give 100 percent to make it happen, a summit attempt is possible for you. However, it’s no “walk in the park”. When scheduling a guided climbing trip to the summit of Devils Tower, we require that you climb with us at least one day in Custer State Park prior to your summit attempt to best prepare you for the physical and technical challenges that come with tackling Devils Tower.

It is highly recommended that you stay at or near Devils Tower the night before your summit attempt because we often start our summit trips very early in the morning.

Devils Tower is of cultural and religious significance to many Native American tribes. Out of respect, Sylvan Rocks encourages guests and all rock climbers to honor the voluntary June climbing closure. Please enjoy other summits during the month of June.

  • 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.

  • 3 Day Devils Tower Blitz

    If you have never climbed before or if you are looking for a great tour of all the amazing climbing in the region, the three-day Devils Tower Blitz is the course for you! We spend two six-hour climbing days in Custer State Park building skills and knowledge so you can be as efficient as possible during a potential Devils Tower summit attempt. At the end of your second day, your guide will make an honest assessment of your abilities, and decide whether a summit attempt is feasible for your skill level. If it is decided that a summit attempt will be made, on the third 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 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 third day climbing in Custer State Park or Mount Rushmore National Memorial.

    For experienced climbers, this trip is three days with a guide, covering as much vertical terrain as possible. For new climbers, this is your greatest opportunity to hone your skills and make a successful summit attempt of Devils Tower.

We chose to rock climb as a family of four last minute and we're so glad we did. It was one of the highlights of our South Dakota trip. Daryl found us a guide who was personable and patient. My 5 and 7 year old were able to climb 15 and 30 foot cliffs and my wife and I found the climbs exhilarating and fun. The price was reasonable and it fit well into a day trip to Custer State Park.

Great day out with Brandon last week! He’s an awesome guide and got me up several beautiful and fun climbs. I love climbing around Sylvan Lake! The rock is spectacular and the views amazing. Thanks to Sylvan Rocks for providing such a wonderful experience!
