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.


Middle route on the north side of the Cornflake formation.


8 bolts and chain anchors.

Really fun route. Crux seemed incredibly thin for a 10b.

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.

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