Gobs of Knobs 5.3 3+ 10 III VD 3a  SD : Custer State Park : ... : The Point / Beside The Poin...
This climb is on the lower angle face covered in large knobs. The route follows the line of least resistance to a chain anchor. This makes a great top rope for beginning climbers as well as a good opportunity for new leaders. An optional second pitch exists:(5.1R) Step across, clip a bolt, and scamper up the rounded ridge to the next anchors (shared with Wave Runner), reached by walking on a sloping ledge, not going to the very top. Rap down Wave Runner....[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
