Devils Tower

Devils Tower Trip Report (#1706)

My son Alessandro and I climbed the Tower with the guidance of Frank Sanders. We followed the Durrance Route with the Bailey direct finish. We left the parking lot under the Tower at 4.15 am and we were back at the lot at 2.50 pm. The climb was spectacular and we enjoyed it incredibly. Everything was made even more memorable by Frank's expertise, friendship and approach to climbing. He's definitely the Tower's Man, and if any of you contemplates having a guide for this climb, you should definitely consider talking to him. He manages the Devils Tower lodge, which is located at the boundary of the park, and allows you spectacular views of the rock you are about to climb.
