This area has some of the best climbs in the area, like Yippey-Kay-Yay and never kiss a sleeping wolf


Getting There 

To get here, park in the same place as you would to go to Big Picture Gully(by the Damn), then go across damn and go right down stream. Follow the trail next to the river until you get to a some stacked rocks and there is some yellow tape on a tree(if its still there, havent checked lately)which will be on your left, then follow the trail until you get to thewall and the indian wars wall is right and all others are left starting with Lady in Red wall, which has Yippy-Kay-Yay.

Carl dodges the bullet on Ricochet, 5.12c. <br /> <br /> <br />Indian Wars Wall. Mohican. <br /> <br />Spearfish Canyon, SD.

Ricochet 5.12c 7b+ 27 IX- 27 E6 6b  SD : Spearfish Canyon : ... : Indian Wars Wall
Start on a ledge that is just to the left of the second bolt on Battlecry. Start pulling on a small sidepull and then continue up making long moves. The climbing is technical, offering ledges and shallow pockets. You will come to an awkward sidepull/pinch and some good feet. After this intial cruxy move you will encounter a left-hand mono. Pull off the mono and either go to a big right hand or use the small intermediate before. At this point, you can either top it out the same as Battlecry...[more]   Browse More Classics in SD

If by some freak accident someone gets bored of the routes on the Mohican, many boulders lay beneath the Gully of Biblical Proportions waiting for first ascents. The easiest way to get to them is to hike about half way up the trail to the Mohican always looking for a small rock cairn on your left. When you see it follow the faint trail for about 50 yards and you should run into the boulders.

Bouldering right under the best wall in the Canyon...there is only a few ways such a thing can happen. Fuks found them. Cronin got lost on the way down to his car due to Alzheimer's and started climbing on the rocks mistakenly, or McNabb was finally told that you can't pull on the nylon straps of quickdraws as a way of ascension. Whats up guys...just thought I would say hi....and where are those two really good routes? One was Battlecry and the other one to the left was called Ricochet or something. Perfect lines.
