This route is ok but not that great. The most difficult part is near the bottom as you angle to the right. There are small ledges here to rest on but tough moves in between them. From a big ledge about halfway up, you move right into a gully which provides fairly easy climbing and brings you to the top of the wall. If you don't move right near the bottom, you will run into two bolts. These are likely on the route A Little Piece of South Dakota which is listed on the main page for this crag in the list of routes. One of these bolts has a quicklink on it and one is quarter inch with an "SMC" hanger.


This route is on the left side of the rock to the right of North Dakota. It starts behind a large tree where a thin crack angles up to the right. You walk off to the left (east) after you top out.


Standard rack up to a #3 Camalot. Build a gear anchor at the top.
