This is one of the best boulders in South Dakota. John Gill apparently thought so too, and established a slew of classic lines on it. The imposing yellow wall has great highballs with bolted toproping anchors for mortals. Hard mantle problems, fun flakes, dicy edging, and delicate friction can all be had on this classic piece of stone.
Walk along the trail on the side of Sylvan Lake opposite the general store. After a few minutes walk, look uphill at the huge boulder. This is it.
