The Black Hills are unknown to most but hold a perfect trifecta of rock climbing ranging from overhanging limestone canyons to multi-pitch granite. With the closeness and diversity of these areas, the Black Hills should be considered to be a Mecca of North American climbing and a mandatory stop on every climber’s tick list.

Additional Info

Nearly 30 years since the release of Paul Piana’s Touch the Sky, The Needles of Rushmore is a fully comprehensive update to the mystical treasure map of the granite in the Southern Black Hills (east of Harney Peak). The book includes over 900 detailed routes from Palmer Gulch to Remington Road, including the popular sport climbing area, Mt. Rushmore. The Needles of Rushmore transcends guidebooks with the creative work of coauthor, Andrew Burr (senior climbing photographer of Climbing magazine). Combine this stunning photography with the meticulously sculpted route descriptions and The Needles of Rushmore sets a new benchmark for rock climbing guidebooks.
