Just Jugs 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  South Dakota : The Needles Of Rushmore : ... : Unknown Area 1
This is not a typical route at Rushmore. There are a lot of really interesting large features to use. This is the route on the left. Start up the route past the first bolt to an overhange. Traverse right a couple of feet on big holds. Reach up and pinch/lieback on a large fin/flake. Continue up on large holds until you get the last bolt (6th bolt). Continue up the easy slab to the anchors. Note, this route shares the 6th bolt and anchors with Fintastic....[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
