Old contentions over name, climbing at Devils Tower NMon coming to fore again

Standing 867 feet tall, equal roughly to a 62-story building, Devils Tower in northeastern Wyoming is an awe-inspiring site. To many of the indigeous tribes with a connection to the monolith, it is known as Bear Lodge Butte and considered sacred.

It’s easy to look upon the soaring mass of rock, classified as a national monument administered by the National Park Service, and desire to scale it as was first done over a century ago . With more than 100 routes listed on Mountain Project it is clear that it’s a common sentiment amongst climbers.
