Description 

An oasis in the middle of nowhere chock full of tasty, limestone treats.

And yes, if you are into bouldering, this is the area with a high concentration of tasty boulders that are soaked in buttery Taster's Choice sickness. The boulders are located below the cliffs.

Getting There 

Walk past the Court House Wall, walk past the Seepy Creepy Wall, walk past the Green Mile and keep walking past The Dojo. Be sure to bring a snack.

Or, if you are so inclined, park at The Danks parking lot and walk to the main trail that leads to climbs, like Mary Jane. Keep walking past this Danks Trail (mentioned in Cronin's Guide) toward Cheyenne Crossing for about two more telephone poles and cross the creek a log bridge. Follow a trail that leads to a blocky boulder about halfway up the slope. The boulders are located between the cliffs and the creek. Boulderers will know where they are once they see a rusty barrel in the middle of a field of green moss. The boulders start here and keep going in a north easterly direction. Keep hiking up the trail if you brought ropes, harnesses and quickdraws instead of pads. The routes are located at the top of the trail. Head right at the traverse trail if you want to go to The Delicacy Wall and head left if you want to climb the Slim Shady routes.

A good power route for those who like it rough. An overhung crux down low leads to a string of good pockets in multiple cruxes that require lots of strength, good defensive technique and a major commitment to the cause. A good route for womankind because so many boys have gone crying home to mama after attempting it.Burly! Beyond vertical, gymnastic and crimptastic! Requires a strange combination of delicate, fine tuned moves and brute strength.Not a good route for those who have recently been m...[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
