Wrinkled Rock is the big hump of granite on the right as you walk up the Chopping Block approach trail. This is the hardman crag at Rushmore - just about everything is hard, with the difficulty topping out on Lizzy Beam's Desire, a Todd Skinner 13d/14a.

Wrinkled Rock is named for the dykes lacing the face of this hulk. A Wrinkle in Time in particular follows a beautiful dyke that wanders across an otherwise blank piece of granite.

Getting There 

From the car, walk up the Chopping Block approach trail. After a strenuous 30 second walk, Wrinkled Rock comes into view.

Take another rest, then up to the left, sling horn above. This climb was extra pump...[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
