The Needles of Rushmore

Nearly 30 years since the release of Paul Piana’s Touch the Sky, Rushmore Needles 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. Rushmore Needles transcends guidebooks with the creative work of coauthor, Andrew Burr (senior photographer of Climbing magazine). Combine the stunning Burr photography with the meticulously sculpted route descriptions and Rushmore Needles sets a new benchmark for rock climbing guidebooks.
