Narrow, shady descending gully that is divided into the wider and sunnier Upper Hall and the lower, narrower, and shadier Lower Hall. Several routes are also located behind the North Wall of the Lower Hall in a sunnier more open area called the Outer Hall.This area is pretty unique at Rushmore and has a certain engaging quality to it. Moving between the halls requires some 4th class chimney moves.

Getting There 

There is a long detailed description in the Burr and Busse guide. More briefly-- face toward the 5.8 route Lazy Afternoon on the Main Wall. Walk around it to the right and up the slope to the left. Trend back slightly right and enter the lower of the two gullies that you'll see.

Start in black schist. Scramble up to a two-handed MONSTER jug that begins the route in a bit of an athletic fashion. Then move thoughtfully through moves up to bolt 3. You will now be on a VERY blank-looking granite slab. There are some decent footholds, but the handholds are very sketchy (and that is putting it generously). Top has tricky beta. The crux seemed to be a very cryptic sequence around bolt 4, but the top is hard period. Make, single-mindedly, for a tiny diagnoling flake (not great ...[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
