This is the centermost route on the wall. It was bolted on the lead in the style of the South Dakota Needles, mostly for practice with that style. I did it so long ago that I can't recall the exact number of bolts or pins. Rumor has it that at least one pin fell out, so it may be even more serious now. I thought the climbing was good and intricate.


You may need some small nuts, I can't remember.

There is only one bolt on this route now, and there are no pins. I thought the crux was right at the bottom. Jan 19, 2017
