4 out of 5 stars First climb in the Black Hills!

I scoped this line out yesterday while walking around the lake...looked easy and well protected. Got on it and found it was easy and a bit runout at some points. There is a spinning buttonhead out right that you can clip which gives you a little more peace of mind about 3/4 of the way up and from there you have to run it out to the chains unless you bring a nut or two. I forgot mine so it was pretty spicy! All in all, easy moves and beautiful scenery. Lots of gawkers too...

I took a man climbing that was 69 years old and had not been climbing in 30 years. He loved it...that made both of our day!
