Devils Tower WY East, USA
Climbs 150 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude 5000m a.s.l – Faces all
USA--Wyoming. Known to native Americans as Bear Lodge. Known to us Brits as 'that crazy rock tower from Close Encounters of the Third Kind'.
IMPORTANT: Climbing on the Tower is now strongly discouraged throughout the entire month of June by the Lacota people and other tribes. The 'no climbing on the tower in June' is entirely voluntary, although the park service also strongly discourage climbing during that month. The affected tribes are very pleased with the observation of this pratice and, to be honest, it would be pretty bad karma to ignore this. Just come back in july etc.
