DescriptionWaves is one of the best easy routes at Rushmore. Begin on the left side of a ledge on the face furthest from the highway. The first 20 feet of thin climbing up a dyke is the crux. The route can be done as one pitch with a 60 meter rope, but there is an excellent belay ledge halfway up that makes for a good introduction to multipitch climbing. The second pitch is fun steep 5.7 on jugs.
A double rope rap from the summit reaches the ground. This is a great route.
