Fun Bags is a great route for 5.5-5.7 climbers to practice their leading skills on. Well protected almost too well.... As in I skipped the first 2 bolts because the start is a scramble. To me this route feels like 5.5. Most climbers agree 5.6 is fair. The route goes through a small bulge mid way up. Huge crystal holds through the bulge make this the funnest part of the route. After the bulge easy climbing to the top Chain Anchors.


When Looking at the SE face Fun Bags is the obvious Bolted line to climbers left.

Definitely would be good for beginner leaders as there are lots of bolts in good condition. At the bulge I've found it easier to go to the left of the bolt although I've also went right and it's pretty similar. Good route overall and would recommend. ALSO, this route doesn't get much traffic! I've never ran into anyone there even on busy days which is nice.

Always make sure to climb this every summer I'm at Rushmore as a warm-up route or a cool-down route one of the days I'm out climbing there. Fun every time.
