Beefy crashpads might protect the crux better than gear. In 2005 there were two bolts up high.

Description:

Situated near the left hand edge of the Don Quixote wall, Rush-ins could be the best 5.11 at Minnehaha. Originally top-roped and head-pointed on marginal gear (no bolts), this route is a stout onsight, because you'll most likely deck if you fall on the crux. But you can always top-rope. After all, it's Minnehaha.

4 out of 5 stars Clever

The crux is a very interesting balance / power move. Without beta this one could take awhile to unlock. Little better protection and this would be a great lead.

I have no idea when I first succesfully top-roped this. I've haven't yet lead it, but I'd like to.
