Description

A Black Hills must do!!! Start matched on the lowest shelf. Do a few moves to get to the arete (avoid the detatched block). Tall, but the mantle is easy. Powerful with a very tricky sequence of classic moves.
Hint: On the upper crux move, to get to the large hold throw out left to a high, left sidepull that looks questionable then bump to the big pod.

Location

Park as for Chopping Block. Walk up the road towards Mt. Rushmore, past the sign and past the first trail behind the sign. A faint trail that runs parallel to the road will appear to your right. The trail will eventually take a 90 degree turn up a gully. Go up this gully for about 1 minute until it is possible to head left. Go left through the brush and around the bulge. You have arrived.

Protection

A couple of pads and a spot.
