Description 

Rhinoceros Rock is the slabby rock just to the west of the massive Outer Outlet. This rock sees few ascents, but it has a couple of fun cracks for beginners. The northwest face is highly broken up with cracks running diagonally up and to the right.

Fixed rappel anchors are located at the highest point, and go off the south side of the rock.


Getting There 

Follow the Outlets trail around to the northern edge of the area. From the meadow just north of the Outer Outlet, Rhinoceros Rock is just west (right), and is connected to Outer Outlet by a gigantic boulder that is cammed between the two.

Alison pulls the final difficult move to gain the summit.

Northwest Crack 5.6 4c 14 V S 4b  SD : Custer State Park : ... : Rhinoceros Rock
This route is a lot of fun, and a good lead for leaders with a little experience placing pro. Although this can be done as one pitch, it breaks up nicely into two pitches with a great ledge to belay from.Start near the right side of the north face of Rhinoceros Rock. A variety of possibilities exist, but take a crack that diagonals from left to right up a ways, and then take the easiest path to the shoulder to the right of the summit. Fixed anchors are here for a belay. For the second pitch,...[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
