Purchase this book. From the Chessler Books website. The Climbing Management Plan (CMP) for Devils Tower National Monument was released in February This plan provides direction for climbing activities at Devils Tower to protect the natural and cultural resources of the park.

A Climbing Management Plan. The Tower is an astounding geologic feature that protrudes out of the prairie surrounding the Black Hills.

It is considered sacred by Northern Plains Indians and indigenous people. Hundreds of parallel cracks make it one of the finest crack climbing areas in North America.

Devils Tower. Hundreds of parallel cracks divide Devils Tower into large hexagonal columns. These features make it one of the finest traditional crack climbing areas in North America. The cracks vary in length and width: some are wide enough to fit your entire body, others barely have room for your fingers; the longest crack extends nearly feet upwards.

Devils Tower National Monument wants to remind rock climbers at the Wyoming park that the annual voluntary climbing closure starts June 1 out of respect for Native American tribes. VOLUNTARY JUNE CLIMBING CLOSURE The National Park Service asks that climbers choose not to climb the Tower during the month of June.

The June voluntary climbing closure was selected as part of the Devils Tower Climbing Management Plan by a working group that included two climber organizations, two American Indian organizations, and other agency and local government.

DEVILS TOWER NATIONAL MONUMENT CLIMBING HANDBOOK By Guillmette, Richard, Steve Gardiner, etc. Price: $ The crack and sometimes off-width climbing that leads to the top of Devils Tower is no walk in the park, so expect to use some muscles that might not normally get much action.

As mentioned in the description of the 2 Day Blitz, reaching the summit of Devils Tower National Monument is all about desire. Summer climbers are ignoring the seasonal closure of a sacred Native American site. During June, visitors are asked not to climb Devils Tower - a Wyoming National Monument.

Guilmette authored the climber information and first-rate descriptions of the climbing routes and deserves top billing, but Mr. Gardiner and I had a hand in the project. It is a holistic picture of the nation's first national monument and appeals to climbers and non-climbers alike.
