Starts high on the shoulder of the flake. Climb a wierd crack onto a pedestal - you may want to place a piece because you are pulling out over a 30 foot drop. Climb easily to a stance where a bolt can be clipped(scary if you are short). Make a few thin moves until the flakes narrows, and then grab the edge and shuffle up the side. The climbing is spectacular and totally unique-one of the very best routes at Rushmore.

jumped on another parties TR. Next time worthy of a lead. I'd birng a .5 or .75 to protect the opening. Not that the climbing is difficult there, just that it's about 30 feet down even though you've only done 4 moves.
