This starts on the ugly podlike face left of Sharkstooth, and climbs to a beautiful sharp arete. The crux lower climbing is not great, but the upper arete is some of the most fun easy climbing at Rushmore.

Beautiful line. Seems like 5.6. Ends near the top of the Hornet's Nest. Can rap down with a 70.
