Description 

Pitch 1) Ten bolts lead to a two bolt belay on a ledge. A tricam or 3/4 TCU and small brass nuts might be helpful between bolts 9 and 10.

Pitch 2) Climb face above belay to a bolt, move right to large hold and seams where brassies might be helpful even though I didn't use any.

Higher up wired nuts can be used in a horizontal. One more bolts protects easier moves to the top. Small brass and regular wired nuts as well as a .5 tricam or equivalent cam and many quickdraws are the gear you need.

Location 

Starts just right of a chimney on the buttress that is the tallest part of the formation.

Protection 

bolts, gear

This route was done ground up with hooks for protection while drilling the bolts. It has a lot of bolts but you will want to take Brass and Wired Nuts to 1/2 inch, small Cams and lots of draws.

Thanks for the upgrade. Those things don't come out that easily. Hope you are well Brent.

Cindy Tolles Guide The Needles Of South Dakota Describe this route as Good Protection. The route begins in a alcove just left of the overhang. Follows the bolt line to a good ledge( 145' pitch 1) continue up interesting terrain to the top. Second pitch (5.8). Thats all I can help out with.

Read my notes on this climb and here is mostly what I had written in my notebook. This route starts just right of a chimney on the buttress that is the tallest part of the formation. 1)Ten bolts lead to a two bolt belay on a ledge. A tricam or 3/4 TCU and small brass nuts might be helpful between bolts 9 and 10. 2)Climb face above belay to a bolt, move right to large hold and seams where brassies might be helpful even though I didn't use any. Higher up wired nuts can be used in a horizontal. One more bolts protects easier moves to the top. Small brass and regular wired nuts as well as a .5 tricam or equivalent cam and many quickdraws are the gear you need.
