Description 

Cleaver is sandwiched in between Chopping Block and Meat Counter. The giant chockstone that hangs in this area is held up on the left by Cleaver. Although this rock isn't to large, it holds a few popular routes. Wisconsin Beef is a good 5.10, and then there is also a good unnamed 5.9 to its left.

Getting There 

Walk up the hill on a trail between Wrinkled Rock and Chopping Block until it is possible to head left. Walk around until you see the giant chockstone. Cleaver is to the left of the chockstone.

This is a classic in the Chopping Block area. The second route on the left after passing under the huge chockstone, it climbs great crystals on a gradually steepening face. It reminds me of a shorter version of Baba Cool. One of the best of its grade at Rushmore....[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
