About Cathedral Spires:

An awesome and confusing cluster of granite towers up to 4 pitches long. Most of the classics are moderate routes, but there is a smattering of difficult routes(usually runout, definitely not a sport area). Herb and Jan Conn did a heroic job of developing the area back in the 40s and 50s, adding commiting routes up to 5.8s in their Converse high tops.
Nearest town or city: Custer State Park
Directions: Take Needles Highway to the Cathedral Spires parking lot. Hike a mile or so up to the towers, and pick the correct approach gully for your climb.
