Devils tower, Wyoming Can't Post

I saw a picture of it and what a cool looking cliff. I did a quick google search to see if anyone has jumped it and found a cool little story from way back in the day. Thought it was worth sharing.

Is it even jumpable? I would love to hear some stories if anyone here has jumped it or scouted it out!

i have climbed it and found exits.
it is N-P-S though and likely difficult for most to do without getting busted.

sometimes there are nesting birds on the jumpable side, which is why i didn't try to jump it. i'm certain the fines would be a lot more during that time - not to mention disturbing the birds.

to make it to the top you must have some trad abilities. (~5.9) i'm not that good and was able to lead the whole thing with wife in tow. Laugh

Ah, one of the earliest documented references to the NPS being a bunch of bitter, soul-less, angry little bitches!*
