At the Marker/Monster sign-in book look right - walk over to the formation and look for a bolt line going up the face. This is a well traffic-ed climb and has a nice slab for a belayer to park their can.The first 10 feet and the last 15 feet are the most difficult areas. Have a good spotter for the opener and a good head about you for the closing.Nice view and well worth the effort. There is only one small draw back and that is proximity to the road ... it is sometimes impossible to hear commands (especially during rally).This climb has changed slightly from VP's 1995 book. There are now 12 bolts instead of 6 and the lower half of the climb is slightly over protected (bolt 2 is unneeded).As always, bring equalization with you for the top.

This route I like very much. It was the first one I had climbed in rushmore. I think it is much easyer than what it was rated in VP's book.
