DescriptionGet your friends together and bring all of the pads you have for this absolutely classic problem. Why? Because you guys are about to climb the best V3 in South Dakota and unfortunately it doesn't have the best landing.
Start on big sidepulls at five feet and get into the "CAVITY". Now get a big undercling and reach up to a sidepull up and left...reach with your right hand over the lip to a jug using intermediates if needed. I'd recommend going to the top and cleaning off the pine needles before attempting. Notice the perfect jug on top?..ya, you grab that.
Note: Please don't cut down the tree that lines the right side of this problem. It's very cool and doesn't interfere with the climbing.
Location: See the map and description in the pictures for the Emancipation Boulders
