Very pleased with how this route turned out! Wander up NE face finding good gear and pulling well protected cruxes on excellent rock. Start the same as Gill Route from the talus perch. Place a piece right away then move out on to the face. Find your way to horizontal and prepare for the crux. Another smaller crux is near the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
