  Climbers ahead -- where the going gets tough
by mrclay2000

Favorite thing: Climbers routinely scale the crenellated surface of Devils Tower, but for most of the way the climb is technical and requires training, ropes and pulleys. Climbers are required to register before making an attempt on the summit, which is nearly 900 feet above the base.

Certain viewing tubes around the circuit supposedly poinpoint ancient ladders used by the earliest climbers (do not shoot me if you can't find them).

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
