Description [Edit]

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 [Edit]

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 [Edit]

A couple of pads and a spot.


Nice work josh! Glad I could be there to witness the first send. Oct 14, 2008
