Description:

Turn left at the top of the approach gully, and wind around the corner of the Chopping Block. Two bolted routes ascend the corner of the face away from Wrinkled Rock. Baba Cool is on the left. Climb a steep face on good crystals. One of the best routes of its grade at Rushmore.

5 out of 5 stars one of the funnest in chopping block

The difficulty is pretty sustained, no obvious crux. Worth the sore fingertips

5 out of 5 stars Very awesome 5.10a

This climb is excellent, but you have to keep your cool, it gets heady, you feel exposed, you kinda are...

5 out of 5 stars Classic!

One of my favorite climbs in the entire area. I thought the 5.9+ rating was a little stiff, but as are most ratings in this area. Crystal crimping the entire way. Sent on top rope. Highly recommended!
