A Fate Worst Than Death boulder is a cool boulder with a beautiful arête on its east face. It is hidden in a corridor and faces away from the trail. Other problems exist at the base and surrounding areas.

Getting There 

Hike past The love knob heading north you will come to a open valley area and see a faint bike trail. From here hike up for about 5 minutes and look to your left. You should see a big cave / overhang known as the "whine Cellar". Go past this heading west and slightly up from the Whine Cellar you will hit this corridor and jumble of blocks.

Start on a good left hold and a bad slopey crimp (the holds my hands are on in the picture). Do two difficult moves to get you to the start holds for Mcnabs Arete and finish for that problem. This is the best problem in the area in my opinion....[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
