Ranges from classics on Horsetheif Spire (seen from parking) to 'Almastafa' to 'Madam Mohawk' and 'Forbidden Colors'. Not much of a trail system, may take a while to catch your bearings.

Forbidden Colors 5.13b 8a 29 IX+ 30 E7 6c  South Dakota : The Needles Of Rushmore : ... : Right of Passage
Once the cover of Climbing Magazine, this thing is the best hard sport route in all of Rushmore, or the Hills?? Beautiful tall arete with sharp water streak. Sustained 5.12+ crimper moves the whole way to a redpoint crux at the top. Given the short and flat hike this classic deserves more attention!...[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
