Scramble up a 4th class gully to reach the base of the route on the side opposite from Mt Rushmore. There are several different starts. Climbing directly up bolts to the route is 5.10, or you can easily traverse in from the left at 5.3ish. Afterwards, climb psat bolts to the summit of the formation - a long pitch. Double rope rap to descend.

Single pitch climb with a multi-pitch approach. We took the finger crack start. Seemed a touch hard for 5.7 but pros well. Then moved left and clipped a couple of bolts on the 5.10, then up and right to the bolts on weird water. The guide says 10 or 12 bolts, we counted 7 plus the 2 from weird dripper (5.10).
