Many of these boulder problems are not actually located on boulders but are part of the formation itself. They are located high on the formation. The hardest problems at Baldy's Lil-Brother are located here.

Getting There 

These boulder problems are located on the east side of the cliff. You can hike from either side of Baldy's Lil-Brother to get to these problems. If you are hiking down the trail from Baldy to the Organ Donor Area, these problems are high on the other side of the formation.

Wish I would have eyed this one first! One of the most diverse boulder problems in the Black Hills. Starts with your right hand on the obvious low edge in the middle of the face and left on a very small pinch. Get a bad heel hook and head up into the finish of the Bicep Traverse. If your heel doesn't stick on the first move, try on another shoe. This turned out to be the key for the first and second ascents. The best problem on the wall and one of the best problems in the Old Baldy vicinity!!!...[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
