Amazingly exposed arete climb that offers beautiful views both up and down the canyon. Crux is in the beginning with powerful moves to deceiving pockets. The 5.10 arete climbing begins as soon as you reach that sharp corner. Be careful of your rope because it will cross over the arete at one point....[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.
