Most of the bouldering and climbing is more beginner level, but there are some 5.12’s at the Palisades. The rock has crimps and slopers, and has a ton of crack systems. It's rarely crowded, so it's a great place to climb with a friend or two in peace. It's also a great place to go with a crew since there is something for pretty much everyone.
Palisades State Park is located at 25495 485th Avenue in Garretson, South Dakota. Drilling, bolting, and chipping are prohibited. For a complete list of the rules and regulations around climbing at Palisades, read this brochure before you go.
