Comments: Zack, this photo was probably taken from Season Down Under, two routes to the right.

Comments: Nice send, Rob!! I looked at that thing about 12 years ago and couldn't see a path. Way to work it!!

Comments: Prepare yourself for some sharp crimping/high stepping at the crux. I tried this years ago and got thoroughly shut down. Not wanting to leave a biner, I traversed left to the 5.10 route, topped that out, and moved back to this route to set a toprope. Leaving a biner would've been the smarter option.

Comments: Guidebook say 5.9+, I thought it was much easier than that. When I climbed it in 2005, it was filthy, covered in cobwebs and the upper portion was heavily vegetated. Enjoy!

Comments: Zach,
I've got nothing to add regarding FAs on this chunk as I only had eyes for one hard line on this side of the boulder (back when I was strong LOL)...starting low and left, traversing the lip, into and past the gastons, and into the middle of the overhanging face, then up. Never came close to getting past the gastons.

That said, you have this and Gaia listed as "V-easy". Seems like they'd be harder than that. I never did those specific lines up this boulder but surely they're more difficu... more >>

Comments: Bob & Carrie's supplemental guidebook say 5.11b. Probably two moves of 5.10+ is more like it...easier if you're taller.

Comments: Despite being a well-traveled 15 year old route, I unexpectedly pulled off a large, well-chalked hold just left of the first bolt. Ended up with a bruised heel but could've been much worse. It's a little reachier getting to the nice left hand pocket, but the grade hasn't changed.

Comments: I think the generally accepted order (left to right) is:

Ship's Prow, V0+.
Ship's Prow Right, V1, maybe a bit harder.
Ship's Prow Direct, V6-7, if it looks like a hold, it's not "on".
Finger Ripper, V3.
Ship's Prow Standard, V3, soft for the grade.
Curving Crack, V-fun.

Comments: About 15 years ago, my friend and I were wearing shorts and baselayers on the descent. We get just below K2's summit and the rain starts, then the hail, then the sleet, and then snow. This was in mid-July. Good times!!

Comments: I walked up and down the road for at least 100 yards either direction looking for a cairn or trail and found none. How close to the pullout is the trail?

Comments: That far right of the flake is probably solid, however the whole flake sounds spooky when you thump it with your fist.

Comments: This is the original route up the arete. 5.9+ is a sandbag too, more like mid to upper .10. Lichen No Other should be deleted from the route database as a duplicate.

Comments: Did some crystals break off? I thought the upper section was extremely reachy and difficult for 5.11. IMO probably 5.11d or 5.12a for anyone under 6 feet tall.

Comments: I didn't stem and thought the section above the first bolt was 5.8+. Kudos to the old schoolers climbing that with 2 bolts. I was thoroughly spooked until I got to the second (current) bolt. Take a .75 Camalot for the horizontal crack down low if you want piece of mind.

A 70 meter rope reaches the ground with just a few feet to spare.

Comments: IMO this is the best route on Moonlight Ridge. Between a few rest stances, navigate the best path through an assortment of crimps and sidepulls.

Comments: I'm going to be climbing in the Mt. Rushmore area in a few weeks. Does anyone have suggestions for campgrounds? I know about Wrinkled Rock but I've done enough dirtbagging over the years so when I get the chance, I prefer campgrounds with running water and level ground. Yeah, I must be getting soft.

I've camped at Horse Thief before and liked the location/convenience but they're booked up. Does anyone have suggestions for similar campgrounds in the same general area?

Comments: Pete, that section did look unprotectable which is probably why someone thought it needed a bolt. My friend and I didn't climb the route, we just noticed it as we were checking out some others routes.
I'm not sure if any of the park staff is knowledgeable about bolts (or if any of them even climb) but hopefully this is an isolated incident and won't affect climbing access. That said, the bolt should be removed as soon as possible. I'll gladly do it if I get back up there this year.

Comments: This is a nice route with nice vertical climbing on good holds. Much of this area has been "landscaped" by the Park staff to remove saplings and small trees. No bush-whacking necessary.
