Luke Kretschmar on Wrinkle

Description 

Wrinkled Rock is the big hump of granite on the right as you walk up the Chopping Block approach trail. This is the hardman crag at Rushmore - just about everything is hard, with the difficulty topping out on Lizzy Beam's Desire, a Todd Skinner 13d/14a.

Wrinkled Rock is named for the dykes lacing the face of this hulk. A Wrinkle in Time in particular follows a beautiful dyke that wanders across an otherwise blank piece of granite.


Getting There 

From the car, walk up the Chopping Block approach trail. After a strenuous 30 second walk, Wrinkled Rock comes into view.

Must do classic! A well engineered route that is not your typical plumb line climbing. Follow the left to right rising squiggly dike for about 35'. Traverse is somewhat tricky. Then pulling onto the slab will test your granite skills. Straight up from here, crossing several more dikes, bring finger size gear for a couple spots (do-able without, but nice to have). At least for sure one .5 camalot, I think. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
