This one isnt up on Mountain Project yet, but its a good warm up problem. Sit start at the far left side flake/horn, work right along the long horizontal flake to the small water chute. Top out here or continue right to test your stamina. There are many different ways to experiment on this one. Walk off the back....[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota

Not sure why the fascination with this boulder lately not to say its a bad thing. I have had a lot of people in the past month ask about the problems on this boulder. A place like Sylvan and the Needles most of the obvious boulders you can see have likely been climbed either as established problems or as warm ups that may not see much if any traffic. I know its been bouldered as a warm up. Not sure on the FA or what its called but I'm sure someone has climbed it in the past month because they called me when standing in front of it. Maybe they will chime in. Cheers!

Thanks Mike. Do you think it's worth keeping up on here? I took a wire brush to it earlier today and it's fairly nice now. I think its popular because it's so close to the parking lot and lake. It's easy for me to run through it on my lunch break at the Sylvan Lake Store.

Hey Jack no reason I see of why not to have it on here. Glad to hear your working at the sylvan general store. Spent many years working at Sylvan. Stop down at Legion Lake if you want more bouldering info. Ask for Mike ;)
