It is sad seeing routes about political nonsense that is over. Naming a route bashing on YOUR president makes little to no sense. Rock climbing, especially in the Black Hills, should be cherished and preserved. Naming a route "President Donald Skunk" seems to only disrespect our great hills. In no way does Donald Trump tie into our climbing.

Take it with a grain of salt, but in an area named Emancipation Rock Formation with routes like "political division" and "smear campaign," I think the aforementioned name is more than appropriate. Perhaps you're just behind the times...

If only this route was 80 ft longer.. fun finger crack but a real pain to find.
