Once the cover of Climbing Magazine, this thing is the best hard sport route in all of Rushmore, or the Hills?? Beautiful tall arete with sharp water streak. Sustained 5.12+ crimper moves the whole way to a redpoint crux at the top. Given the short and flat hike this classic deserves more attention!...[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota

BEWARE OF WASPS! The other day was walking to the base of the baboon and stepped on a grounded nest and got stung around 20+ times. So...tread lightly.
