IHOP follows the crack directly below the roof.
Start by climbing a fun, blocky fist crack past some ledges. Continue up the sustained hand crack that swallows up gear, until it narrows and eventually disappears where a bolt protects the crux. After navigating the crux, sling the tree and enjoy a short, easy romp to the anchors.
The rock can be a bit sandy in a few places, but will clean up with traffic. Two 60m ropes or one 70m will get you back to the belay ledge of GGTW.
From the first belay ledge of GGTW, climb the start of the second pitch, but instead of traversing right to gain the second belay ledge, continue straight up the crack past a tree to a two bolt anchor with webbing of various ages.
Nuts and cams to 3"
A #4 Camalot can be used to protect the start, but is not necessary.

Overall this route isn't terrible, however there is a HUGE lose block right by the anchors. Given that this route sits right above one of the most popular routes in Rushmore, I would not recommend it until the death block had been dealt with.
