Check NPS for Closures


A very secluded area with pretty good rock.

As it is in The Needles of Rushmore guidebook, I have located it on this page even though it is closer to Custer

For the documented routes on the wall:

-A walk off can be done on the backside
-2 single-rope rappels can be made. Locate the rappel anchors on the dead tree ledge. Rappel down to the nice live tree ledge. Rappel to the ground. A 70m rope is recommended, though it can be done with a 60m (just TIE KNOTS and be prepared for about 5 feet of easy downclimbing to the live tree ledge)

Getting There 

Find Camp Remington Road. Follow it for about 1.3 miles. Park on the left. Take Grizzly Bear Creek #7. Follow for about 15 minutes. You will end up right next to the base of this wall (about 200 feet from the trail)

Climbing Season

For the Mount Rushmore National Memorial area.

Weather station 0.7 miles from here
