Comments: Haha so you're saying someone decided to take the trip up this route? How'd it got for them?


Location: South Dakota : Custer State Park : Sylvan Lake : Outlets : Outer Outlet : Conn Diagonal (5.7)

Comments: ^^^^^^^^ If one does the 5.8 "lightning" crack/variation finish and then up the easy, yet runout ridge, there is a set of anchors once you top out, continue on flat territory for another 10ft and there they are. Then rap off these too. Only 1 rope is needed. scramble up and over and there is another 1 rope rap. however this will put you on the opposite side of the conn diagonal, so a little bit of walking is needed to get back to the start of the route...

Comments: a great route to set up a TR after leading tower of teeth or the guardian face. pg-13 if you're relying on the pitons from the 80s. they're rusted and seized up.

Comments: This route is very easy to identify. Walk towards Middle Earth and hang a left at Duet (very tall obvious spire in the picture). Walk along the base of the wall past 2 or 3 bolted routes. You should scramble up a few feet between the wall and a boulder. There is a bolt at ground level to protect the traverse onto the route.

Comments: it's really hard to pic it out, but, there is a climber on P3 and it really puts this climb in perspective.

Comments: do yourself a favor and DO NOT use any holds on either side of the slab (not even the good right hand side pull) and get your slab skills dialed in. V1+.

Comments: blue dotted= viva brazil, sit start, V1
red dotted= beehive variation, sit start, V1, tricky top out.
red= beehive, V2, very tricky top out.
green= beehive variation, stand start, V2, again very tricky top out.
white dotted (right)= beehive stand start variation. if you start for beehive (sit start red line) and come into the this white dotted line and top out( three finger fitness top out) it is HONEYCOMB V3.
white dotted (middle)= beehive stand start variation called KILL WHITEY. if you start ... more >>

Comments: one move wonder down low makes for the technically crux of the climb. I could see people making this harder than 5.7. mental crux up top on the slab the poorly protects and in reality is quite run out although if you did fall it would be back to the ledge. i could also see new leaders hesitate at that point. either way it's a fun and honest 5.7.

Comments: pulling the roof is the distinct crux and if you don't have any jamming abilities and try to layback the slopy/greasy corners of the crack it can go from 5.8 to 5.hard quick. I made a couple laps on TR and from the first to the last time I got it quickly dialed in and 5.8 did seem very appropriate. Fun route and super easy TR set up. I slung a tree and used a #2 bd c4 right by the lip of the top out.

Comments: can someone please get some pictures put up of this route; it is too good a route to not have pictures up on here. people coming from out of state may want a harder way up than the conn diagonal but easier than the 10's and 11's and this route would fit the bill. it is classic imo and has a ton of variety and should not be missed if you're breaking into the 5.9/5.10 grade on trad. (i say that b/c although this is 5.8 the first pitch is certainly 5.8++ and is not gimme, it is sustained ... more >>

Comments: I agree with the previous post. There is a single 5.7 move on the second pitch if you're shorter and I always felt like going up the quartz waterfall on the approach had a single move or two not in the 5.4 range.
