Description 

Ah, Base Camp. Sounds like a warm, fuzzy place to be, eh, Sir Edmund Hilary? Be prepared to get worked! Rated PG-13 because of an approach that you don't want to go tumbling off, this climb is everything that most moderate canyon climbs aren't. Want a climb that's a cakewalk and a gimme? Go home instead of heading to Base Camp. This climb has lots of hidden holds and big moves between unsure crimps from unspecified locations. If you want a beta-less adventure that will undoubtably leave you hang-dogging until you run out of supplies and need to cannibalize your belayer, this climb is a must. If you're looking to add another meaningless onsight to your extensive Black Hills tick list, pack your shit, head down the hill, get in your car and drive until you reach Toy Boat. This climb is all or nothing, "Go big or go home!"


Location 

Directly to the right of Tasting Time. You will need to CAREFULLY work you way up onto a ledge and traverse quite a few unprotected feet before you get to the first bolt. Of course, in true Black Hills fashion, the first bolt is quite a few unprotected feet away, which makes that first clip that much more sweet when you finally pull it off. CAUTION! If you don't have any free climbing experience or confidence, you might want to skip this route.


Protection 

Bring about ten quickdraws. A stick clip might be smart if you can haul it up there. This route has open closed shuts.

Tasting Time is the loooong route on the left hand side while Base Camp is up the slope and behind the tree to the right.
