My GS-100 class at Black Hills State University is helping climbing ranger Will Buckman recruit people to attend an Access Fund Adopt a Crag day as part of their service project. If there are any experinced climbers that can make it I would love to take many of the inexperienced volunteers and students out for an informal climbing session after the event. Trail maintenence will take place from 9-2 and the park is providing lunch and free camping to those that would like to stay the night. Here are some more details:


Hey Mike,
Satuday, September 25th at 9:00. Trail maintenance and revegetation projects from 0900 to 1400hrs. Free bbq and gear giveway for volunteers as well as free camping for that Saturday night. If you have any questions, hit me up. Plus, lets go climbing!!

Update on the Event: Daryl Stisser from Slyvan Rocks contacted me and said they will be giving away a couple of hundred dollars of gear/swag for those participating in the event with the help of Wild Country and Petzl. Lets make this a great event and let everyone know that climbers are concerned about the environment around the tower and the great access we have there. Thanks Mike

I would love to be eating Sushi down at the Creek, but for any Supertopoians that are in the area it sounds like the weather is going to be splitter at the tower. Trail work and then some climbing on Saturday. Let the world know that the tower is sacred to climbers. Meet at the climbing office at the top campground. Thanks Mike

Here is a few pics we took of the day I think one and all enjoyed the experience and we felt like we did something that was helpful by decreasing social trails. We had about 15 students, faculty and staff show up from BHSU and about 25 participated all together. Thanks to Rushmore mountain sports for use of rental shoes and a guidebook, the BHSU bookstore for some gifts and Sylvan Rocks for a big pile of gear that they donated to give away. I think everyone that participated walked away with 3-4 items. I would also like to thank the park service as they were very accommodating and allowed free entrance, a lunch, and free camping. It was a beautiful weekend with a lot of people out climbing.

I think it is an anual event, but last year was the first year I was involved with it. You could look on the Access Fund website or contact Devil's Tower.

there and back again

I would love to be there. Been thinking of going out there again, but I regularly volunteer at the Face Lift in Yosemite that time of year. Bet you'd get more people if there wasn't a thousand climbers cleaning up The Valley during that time of year. Can you make it earlier or later next year?
