Window Rock at Albert Pike Recreation Area

Standing in Window Rock, you can see the Little Missouri River below, which runs right through the campground, and has a wonderful swim area in which to cool off after a day of hiking and climbing.

There are many structures on which to climb.  Most will provide 15 to 40 feet ascents. 

The exposed rock is located at the top of a ridge about 300 feet above the campground, providing spectacular views, and a great sensation of height, even when climbing one of the smaller rocks.

It was this monster that we chose to climb, providing an 80 foot ascent. 

There is a lot of rock here, and would probably take up a couple of weekends to cover it all.
