Comments: Ryan, it appears you are the only person (that has used the tick-list on this site) to have not given this route the satisfaction of being a classic and the only person to have given the route an X rating. Where on the climb does it feel like if you fall you would die? That is what an X rating means. If you are terrified and fecal matter is accumulating in your pants that would suggest an R rating or it would signify you are indeed in the Black Hills.

Comments: For me to not use chalk when climbing hard, someones going to have to pry the chalk bag out of my hands. Which I will lose, because my hands will get sweaty.

Comments: The most beautiful climbing area I have ever been to. Large amounts of rock and amazing routes!

Comments: Anybody know how hard the moves are if you take the right-facing sloping edge up on top? I always climb up to that section then remember I had to go left, then down climb and traverse left then up.

Comments: Very fun route. The roof section isn't has bad as it seems. The start is kind of strenuous with the crux going for the tooth or horn feature just above the big roof.

Comments: Offers three styles of climbing. Lower sections has very normal face climbing, the middle hueco section feels like a boulder problem, and to top it off, a exposed slab with a hidden hold on the top lip.

Comments: Great bouldering area!! I found all the routes to be around V3-4 with the top outs making them hard.

Comments: I remember the crux, and the route for its 12 grade, to be pretty much over after a short dynamic move just after where this guy is.

Comments: To tell you the truth, I too did the same thing, went straight up. The climb straight up felt like a 5.9+ to me. The rock is kinda crappy there because water runs down the dark seam that you have to climb up and also I'm sure there isn't a lot of traffic. The section however can be protected with a medium sized stopper, don't quote me but I think I used a #7.

Comments: I was belaying someone on this route for there first trad lead and well... just like the name states, his knee got stuck in the large crack on top of the route. He was struggling for a good 5 minutes trying to get it out. I felt rather sorry for the guy.

Comments: You can also reach the lower perch on the backside of the summit by starting at the guardrails on the right side of the formation. Using this route is probably a 3rd class hike to the lower perch, than only about 15 feet of actual 5.2 climbing.

Comments: This route offers some great protection low on ther route to avoid ground falls, and some of the needles classic run outs near the top. Even has the best simul-rap in all of the black hills! Its totaly a classic!
