Grappling With the Dough Boy 5.12+ 7c 28 IX 27 E6 6b  South Dakota : The Needles Of Rushmore : ... : Roadside
Very Crimpy! start left of first bolt, get a two finger undercling, and move to the slopper beneath the 1st bolt. do a big move to a crimper, and clip 2nd bolt. kinda traverse up and left to third bolt, and then the crux is from about inbetween the 2nd bolt to inbetween the 4th and 5th. from the 4th to 5th bolt use the crack on the left, then after the 5th move up and right to a redpoint crux just before the 6th bolt. then run it out to the anchors!...[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
