Description 

Immediately upon entering the Rock Maze, this wall extends twenty or thirty feet with a horizontal crack eight or nine feet up the whole way. The entire wall is about fifteen to twenty feet tall. The rock has a "golden" color and is very smooth rock.

Getting There 

At the parking area, walk along the path until you run into the first of the larger boulders in the South Central Area. Walk to the right and eventually you will run into a corridor, of sorts, with a large wall on the left handside and a small, rounded boulder on the right handside. The color of the wall gives its presence away. Look for the long horizontal crack.

Two Left Feet V4-5 6B+  South Dakota : Rapid City Area : ... : Golden Wall
Sit-start variation to 'One Finger Salute.' Start down left on funky under-cling and move out right to slopers (Heel Hook with Left!). Once on slopers out right, left foot goes on a good-sized ledge, right on next to nothing below. Lock-off with right. Reach up and left to edge below lip, and then a small reach to lip. Good to have a spotter on top-out....[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
