Description 

The Cavity is a fun area w/ short mostly bolted routes of easy to difficult grades. Some of these are well bolted. Rap anchors top most if not all routes. I believe there is a scramble route to the top on the left ridge as viewed from between Toy Boat and Cavity. These routes have the potential to be gang top-roped. Please be considerate of other climbers.

Getting There 

With respect to the old road, this is the rock on the far side of Toy Boat. Please see Borneo rock for the approach description to Toy Boat.

Misty Morning 5.10 6b 20 VII- 19 E2 5b  South Dakota : The Needles Of Rushmore : ... : Cavity
This route starts to the right of Tranquil Evening on the side of Cavity facing Toy Boat. This is the original route on this face, and is fun and well worth doing.
