Passive Pro-gression 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  SD : Palisades State Park : Split creek cracks
From the stairs heading to chockstone tower, find a crack with a couple good hand jams leading up to a roof and exiting left to a notch. The crux is just below the blocky roof. I would consider following the crack, then going climbers right till head level with the roof to slot a nut in a verical crack, climbing down a move or two under the roof and then finishing left as this is the cleaner climb. Passive pro makes this a fun trad lead...but feel free to plug some cams. Be careful of bad rock ...[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
