Drew Cummings climbing the quality jugs on Sweat L...
Sweat Lodge is arguably the best 5.11 on the Rosebud Wall, with great rock, interesting moves, and relatively sustained difficulty (and anchors at the lip!). The route begins easily and gets steadily harder as you ascend, with some cool roofs with big jugs. Shorter folks will have trouble at the second roof, making a long reach to a V-slot with the left hand from the white-with-bird-poo undercling jug. Its possible to get a kneebar right before the end, which is nice since the final moves to the chains are pumpy. This route has a great finishing jug, unlike some routes at Sitting Bull.
Sweat Lodge is the 6th route from the left side of the wall, or the 2nd from the right, beginning just right of the small tree that grows at the base of the wall.
