Is there a way to get to the top other than mountain climbing gear?  That is, is there a trail that wraps around the side somewhere?

Not sure, I'll have to read the brochure or use google. I was more interested in getting photos and then returning home. So far, a week in South Dakota, has been my big outing for the year. I attended a photo workshop and the annual meeting of the Photographic Society of America.

I thought you knew everything. Here is what I found, “the Tower is formed of a rare igneous rock, phonolite porphyry, and is the largest example of columnar jointing in the world. ”

There is a trail that goes around the tower.   The only way get to the top is climb the tower.

The kind that breaks off from time to time over the years.  This was at the base of the tower.
