Arete

NW ArÍte V6 7A  SD : Mount Rushmore National Mem... : ... : The Tennie Shoe Boulder
Beautiful smooth arÍte almost dyke like. Good body movement and a little bit of lay backing get you off the ground. Work the dyked arÍte to the top about 5 ft from the top cut right and finish on face to a tricky mantle.As you go higher it gets tricky. Great Problem! Has to be in the top 3 arÍte boulder problems in The Hills. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in SD

Andy Busse, I believe these are the routes my wife (Suzanne Johnson) and I put up in the early to mid '90s. I always wished there were some easy routes close to the camping at Breezy Point. Don't know if you can camp there anymore. We named it the After Dinner Wall. The route names from left to right are One Thin Mint, Wafer Thin, Desert, and Aperitif. Can't recall what we rated them but your comment seems about right.
