Description

A very fun climb that starts mellow and then has a thin crux on steeper terrain starting at about the second bolt. Think outside the box for several moves and then gain a good rest on bigger crystals. Fight for a few more hard sequences that end up on good rests until you reach a small roof. This route gets really fantastic when you use an undercling to gain a super fun sequence of small, delicate holds to the anchors. Highly repeatable and a great warm up for the five twelves on both sides of it.

Location

Middle route on the north side of the Cornflake formation.

Protection

8 bolts and chain anchors.

Stout for 10. After leading all the tens in the area this has to be the hardest in my opinion! Go get it! Sep 7, 2016

I agree with Nathan. This is thin and more than one sequence felt harder than 10b. In the three days I was at Rushmore this was my favorite and the most memorable route I did. Nov 4, 2015

Really fun route. Crux seemed incredibly thin for a 10b. Sep 21, 2015
