DescriptionVeiny is a fairly isolated rock as far as Rushmore formations go. Until just recently, there was only one bolted route on it (Existential Angst, 5.10). Now, it has at least six bolted routes, at least one trad route, and an extra set of anchors for a toprope climb up a steep groove. The ratings of routes on this rock go from 5.6 and 5.7 up to ~5.10+.

Getting ThereThere are a few ways to get to Veiny. One way to get to this rock is to follow the prominent trail that leads into the Chopping Block area from the parking lot. Follow this up the hill until it is possible to head to the west (right) around Wrinkled Rock. Contour around this, then pass Razorback and Stinger on the right before reaching Veiny.
The second way is to look for a trail just behind the outhouse at the Wrinkled Rock parking area. Follow this to the road, cross, and then continue in more a less a straight path for a short distance to Veiny.
