Description:

Killer, Killer, Killer climb! Although a bit difficult to find (but a short hike), this climb is phenomenal! It is very unlike the rest of Rushmore, inthat, rather than crystal pinching, the climb is overhung with big schist holds. Great photo opps!

5 out of 5 stars short fun climb

This one will get the arms workin. Slightly overhanging with big holds all the way up. Awesome route to practice lead climbing.

4 out of 5 stars was I in Rumney?

Seems like you're climbing at the Bonzai wall in Rumney, not at all like most other climbs at Rushmore. Good holds, slightly overhung...if only twice as long!

Lots of fun. The clouds rolled in and it started sleeting when I got to the anchors.
