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'.

This is a fairly new route (2000 or 01?) on the Toyboat and is found immediately to the left of 'Damn The Torpedoes'.The route 'attacks' the easiest path up the rock and probably doesn't even warrant my guess of 5.5.I did it because I was there and I don't feel the need to repeat it. Maybe a good first lead for your mother....[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
