Blue Sky has an evil twin. While Blue Sky has trees, flowers and fluffy bunnies serving you lattes while you belay, Indecent Exposure is like the Waste Lands found in a Mad Max movie where things get real tough real quick. While Blue Sky is a place to go get pumped with a mellow groove, Indecent Exposure is the roller coaster set on full speed with the operator passed out at the switch. You're not getting off these rides without a scare. Sound fun? It sure is.

Getting There 

Park at the Blue Sky parking lot and set off on the long journey up to Big Sky. You will soon come a fork in the path. Go left (North East) to enjoy blue sky. Head right (South and slightly west), if you dare.

Indecent Exposure is a tricky crag in terms of climate. Summer afternoons are out of the question. If you want to get the most out of a session in the dead of summer make sure you get there early in the morning and be prepared to hike to some shade by about noon. Spring and fall are really the best times to climb here. This is actually an awesome winter crag. Yes, it can get cold up there but pain and suffering should be part of the experience. Check the weather, this area does get cold, biting winds which make for a miserable time. But cold weather climbing is great here because the friction is off the hook. Be prepared to grin and bear it and just send already.

However, with that said, it is possible to climb in a T-shirt in the dead of winter if you do get a day with little or no wind. Belayers should bundle up since most routes in this area are long and technical and your hang-dogging partner might just cause you to turn into a Popsicle when they try that complicated series of moves one more time. Winter visitors to the Black Hills tend to flock to The Sunshine Wall so this might be a good place to go in order to beat the crowds unless the locals are restless and get there before you do.

Stick clip first bolt and pull the blocky start to a standing rest. Move up and left to the steep technical belly. Milk a rest after the crux and hang on through the pumpy upper climbing; then it slabs out for a couple fun moves to the anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
