Description

After passing Shipyard Rock and Hornet's Nest, most of South Seas is made up of small spires and fins. Guarding the far side of the area is a large spire with a prominent bombay chimney - this is Child's Molar. Lead Fillings is one of the best 5.9s at Rushmore, and this rock is generally less crowded than the rest of South Seas.

Getting There

A network of trails passes through South Seas, so generally aim for the spire and you'll get there. It is about a 15 minute walk from the road.
