Schist Head Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Photo of Schist Head from the road. The upper 2/3...
This spire faces SW, so it gets sun most of the day. There is a schist band running horizontally about 20 feet up, as well as a schist cap on top. Rock quality is good, with a variety of climbing on schist, quartz knobs and crystals, and granite flakes.
The shortest approach in Rushmore! This spire lies directly between the Inner Marker and Hwy 244. The base of this spire is 100' south of the Monster parking area, and less than a minute from the road!
