This incredible, frightening problem has Chuck Fryberger written all over it. Located on the big boulder to the right of Pop You Up, Over the Radar starts matched on the low pinch in the middle section of the boulder. A few relatively easy right traversing moves lead to a difficult sequence at the arete. Once through the lower arete section a moderate section leads to the lip. The mantle is a scary 15 feet off the ground and is one of the most difficult in the Black Hills. I personally got scared off of it a few times before a successful attempt. No move is harder than V6 but they add up. Just saw its second and third ascents. Super classic!!!
If you are facing Pop You Up, this boulder is to your right and is around the corner on the front of the large face.
As many pads as you can get and at least one spotter.
On the third ascent with the second ascensionist (...
