Comments: Not for climbers uncomfortable with slab. If this route weren't in North Carolina it would have an R rating. Beautiful climb.

Comments: Dixon has a guide book. It's well-written and has great topos which makes problems much easier to find. Go to- facebook.com/groups/1707856262... and look for Matt (author). The CCC gets a percentage of sales.

Comments: Great bad weather alternative to Red Rocks


We got snowed out in Red Rocks and this made for an adventure. It's not for the faint of heart. Every route we did (only 5 routes) peeled through layers of rock like an onion. Think of it as having the technical aspects of slab climbing with the flying projectile fun of ice climbing. That said we had a fantastic time and being granite we didn't have to wait for it to dry out after the rain. I'm trying to organize this section on MP and I don't know... more >>

Comments: Spicey lead. I only found a micro nut placement for the roof pull and then it was another 12' until one decent and one crappy nut placement.

Comments: Winter routes?

I am going to be in the area the weekend of March 8-10. What would the good winter/south-facing routes in the Custer and Rushmore area? My primary interest would be in multi-pitch up to 5.9. Thank you very much for whatever help you can provide.
