The rightmost line on the rock (see directions under the rock entry), just up the small hill.
Bolts for Bob is a fun route that seems to draw me on each visit to Rushmore. A fun start leads to a bit of routefinding in the middle, be careful not to make the climb harder... Eases a bit on top to help with clipping the fixed anchor (2 bolts).
6 draws and something for the top.

This is one of the few routes at Rushmore that a toprope can easily be set on. Traverse in from the right around the corner from the start of the route.
The route itself is fun face climbing.

this is a great route. it is a very safe lead for those who are leading 5.8s all cliping stances are solid. but of course i am 6'3". it might be a bit of a reach in some spots for shorter climbers.

My wife and I climbed it for the first time yesterday(07/15/04). Solid route that allowed our son (he's 1) to cheer for us as we danced through the crux (bolts 2 and 3) and topped out. Nice belay area that is shadey in the morning. This route is a must for the South Seas Area. If you are blessed, you may get to see a mountian goat.Lastly, the LEFT anchor nut was loose. I did my best to tighten it, but fingers are not equivical to a wrench.

This route is pretty sweet. I think the crux is about in the middle. its not too bad. over all the route is cool and climbing next to the tree is interesting.
