Rock Climbing
Devils Tower

July 4th, 2006

The Black Hills Climbers Coalition (of which Bruce is chair) was asked by the Devils Tower staff to take a flag to the top for a special celebration.

We climb Assembly Line, a four-pitch 5.9 route following the left skyline. The photo at the right was taken standing on top at the black arrow.
Each group of climbers to the summit "raised the flag." We carried a two-way radio to communicate with the monument staff, so people at the visitors center could see us.
From the top we look down at the visitors center. The little dots are cars, trucks and RV's. Giant sections of broken columns surround the base of the tower.
Surprisingly, the top of Devil's Tower is covered with grass and bushes, a perfect home for birds, mice, rats and even snakes .
