Description 

This is one of the main Chopping Block boulders with it's perfect height, flat landing, quality rock, and easy approach (though that last one goes for all of chopping block).


Getting There 

From the Chopping Block entrance, at the Mount Rushmore sign, head up the gully between Wrinkled Rock and Chopping Block. Go all the way through past 'Wrinkle In Time' and 'Puppy Stew' and keep straight (west) into the forest down the hill. This will bring you directly to the boulder, if not, you should be able to see it at least.

Few moves but still a powerful classic. For a lot of people the crux will be getting established on the wall. Start matched on the slopey breadloaf pinch and make just two moves to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
