The Boulder on the backside of the Sylvan lake damn offers the some if not the hardest problems in the Hills. Chuck Fryberger first climbed homestar (v11) and King Of Town (v13/v14) was first done by Matt Tschol today it remains unrepeated.

Getting There 

Follow the trail around sylvan lake either way and this boulder is right before the steps by the damn. Homestar and King of Town are the obvious lines in the front of the boulder.

Homestar is the problem to the right when facing the boulder from the front. Sit start to what i could call a side slopper with your left and then move up with your right onto a crimpy ledge. Topping out on this is what i found to be the hardest. I haven't completed it yet but have witnessed ascents. Any more information for this boulder would be great...[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
