This is a classic in the Chopping Block area. The second route on the left after passing under the huge chockstone, it climbs great crystals on a gradually steepening face. It reminds me of a shorter version of Baba Cool. One of the best of its grade at Rushmore.

Very fun route. Did this one in the dark with a headlamp. Great feet most of the way. Another must do. However, the bolts are old and scary looking. Use the anchors for Another 5.9 route right next to it, brand new bolts. May 17, 2007

I took my biggest fall (yet) on the 4th bolt (Jason said "try not to fall on that 4th's older") from about waist high at the fifth bolt---Yikes!! But it was clean, and I still can't make that climb w/o hanging- seems harder than others of the same grade-- I think it's all in the feet and you can walk up it like a ladder but I get freaked. Great climb!!! Mar 12, 2004

This route is kick-ass! Nov 12, 2003
To begin, I'm pretty much a wuss. Having said that, I took one of the scariest falls of my life on this route...tapped my belayer on the shoulder. I would just like mention that one ought to be cautious when clipping bolt #4 and to do so from an appropriate position. That's all i'll say. Nov 6, 2003
