BETA PHOTO: Cross right after these babies


Start at the right side on two slopey points. Cross over with your right and continue on out the hole in the roof :D


Up the hill from the Vegan roughly 70-80 yards. Can't miss it. The Store Boulder and Winter's Warmth are within 20 yards of the cave's entrance


A spotter and a couple pads would've been nice but I sent it without so just keep ur eyes on the road and hands upon the wheel.

Just did the clean FA of a line on the left of the cave on 5/27. Heavy Handed, Lion Hearted V5 or 6 maybe? I'm still a rookie so if someone could let me know what the rating is that'd be great!

No, I don't live in South Dakota anymore. Do you have larger pictures of the cave? I'm just curious. I found some cave 6 years ago or so up there that was deep (10 ft) and really steep but the problem was pretty easy...maybe V3 and the rock was choss (like everything else out there). It looks different than the pic you posted so I'm pretty sure they're different.

Have you been going up to the hills at all? The Vegan is neat and all but should be avoided if at all possible. The good stuff is up by Mt. Rushmore! Get out there!
