The obvious crack is the climb. Staying to the cra...

Description 

This is a fairly decent short crack that offers very good introduction to leading trad at an easy level. The rock quality is fair and the crack takes pro just about anywhere. I found that the crack can be well protected by medium to large hexes or cams. There is also a large tree at the top of the climb that can be slung for top rope.

Getting There 

To get to the route follow the road Up from the Settlers Boulder on M Hill in Rapid City. The climb will come into view in about 1 minute after passing the Settlers Boulder and will be on the right.

Not sure if this route has a name or not, but this is its temporary name. Start near the big pocket a couple feet left of "J crack." Face climb up good pockets, trending left to the arete. Climb the right side of the arete to the anchors. Shares anchors with "Round House and Running." Watch for wasp nests in the some of the deeper pockets....[more]   Browse More Classics in SD

There is seemed to be other routes to the right of this route. I have bolted chains right about 10-20'.

This is a sweet area of unique sandstone right in town. The "Unamed 5.4" title for the area is a bit deceiving because there are multiple TR routes up there. The area should be renamed something a little more creative and descriptive.
