The road drives right by the backside of them and they look like choss. Luke Kretchmar discovered the present day boulders.

Stand start on the horrible bread pinch sloper feature. Left foot goes up high in the corner and your right just kind of dangles for a second. Throw your right hand up and slap the horrible sloper sidepull pocket. Immediately throw your left heel up and cross your left hand through. Work the seam pocket holds with your right and slap the slopers with your left. PUMPY! This problem will spit you off! One of the coolest arête features for the area....[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
