Devils Tower

Devils Tower Trip Report (#1711)

Reaching the summit of Devil's Tower was a dream come true. I had wanted to climb the tower for many years. On vacation with my family I decided to make this dream come true. It had been 15 years since I had climbed on a real rock. I learned to climb in the Garden of the Gods in Colorado. Since it had been many years between climbs I was a bit nervous. As I began to climb the Durance route the nervousness was soon overcome and I had a great climb I made the climb in the morning and was down by noon. I could have quit then but my guide encouraged me to radio my family to come meet us so they could do some climbing. My 6 and 9 year old daughters had a super afternoon climbing, and I climbed some more difficult routes at the bottom of the tower. Frank Sanders, of DevilĂs Tower Lodge, thank you for all you did for my family and me. You went above and beyond the call of duty. You will not soon be forgotten. Frank, I am truly blessed to have lived out one of my dreams. I give all the praise and glory to the Lord God Almighty.
