BETA PHOTO: route follows the black streak

Description 

Once the cover of Climbing Magazine, this thing is the best hard sport route in all of Rushmore, or the Hills?? Beautiful tall arete with sharp water streak. Sustained 5.12+ crimper moves the whole way to a redpoint crux at the top. Given the short and flat hike this classic deserves more attention!

Location 

Follow area's directions and it'll bring you right to the base. Formation can be seen from trail junction.

Protection 

12 bolts
Cold shut anchors
