Another Classic Gene Larson route. Put in before the Bosch ban from the ground up. There is a really devious stance at the bulge that Gene drilled the bolt from (he is pretty darn strong).Follow the 4 Bolts on the North East Face up and over the bulge on small crimpy holds. Great protection and really fun climbing....[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
