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

At least for sure one .5 camalot, I think. ...[more] Browse More Classics in SD
