The Toy Boat is a great place for an introduction to climbing in the Rushmore area. Moderate / easy routes, short, and fairly straightforward. Due to these factors it can get a bit crowded. A perfect place to start your day or cool down at the end.

Getting There 

Please see directions under the rock 'Borneo'.

Putt Putt Toot Toot 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b  SD : Mount Rushmore National Mem... : ... : Toy Boat
This route is found on the 'back side' of the Toy Boat - on the side opposite of 'Damn The Torpedoes'. The last time I was there it was the only route on that face.This route is a bit more vertical in nature, especially compared to the routes on the other side. Climb up and slightly right on big holds and ledges.Not terribly hard or interesting, but it works....[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
