Forbidden Colors 5.13b 8a 29 IX+ 30 E7 6c  SD : Horsethief Lake Area : ... : Right of Passage
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!...[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
