This block has good problems like Virgin Martini and Fleshwound. North Nostril Cave has great pumpy roof problems. It also holds possible ONE of the hardest dyno problems in the Midwest Trogdor V9. Also, this area includes The Calm Gulley with ONE of Baldys hardest The Perfect Storm which is also one of the only V11s at Baldy. Scary Trees, Amish Power, Groovy, Jaba, and mission Impossible are all in this area.

Featured Route For Irie Heights
Rock Climbing Photo: FA. Such a good problem...

Virgin Martini V9 7C  South Dakota : The Needles Of Rushmore : ... : Irie Heights Boulder
Great roof problem using edges. Starts with right hand on obvious edge and left on a hold just to the left of the hold your right is on. Get your foot way out left on the horn. Big move up to a roof edge then you can do one of three things: 1) get a high dropknee on the start hold and reach for the next hold 2) just throw for the next hold or 3) figure something else out. From here the difficulty of the problem reduces greatly....[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
