A Farce to be Reckoned With 5.11- 6c 22 VIII+ 22 E3 5c PG13  South Dakota : Custer State Park : ... : Retable Rock
Stunning looking line when viewed from the road. This bold, but safe, lead should be ticked by every hard needler. Follow the hand size flakes, on the E aspect of the spire, to a left leaning fracture with a pin. Take the large horizontal back right to a hanging flake and clip the first bolt. Rest and build up the courage to punch it for the next bolt, 25' up. Hardware was replaced by BHCC a few years ago....[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
