Warm up Boulder with great views. Usually windy and the landings range from good to so-so. Manky* (V0) was the first problem but up as a warm up. It is on the NW corner (downhill side). There are a few variations of huge Jugs on the N face. The South face has a short but sharp problem Colonial Angus*** ( V1).

Colonal Angus V1 5  South Dakota : The Needles Of Rushmore : ... : Manky Boulder
A really fun bouldery warm up. SDS down and slightly left of corner. Left hand goes on a small indent horn right above the nice starting hold. Right on a nice side pull on the other side. Feet start on low crystals. Pull up with your left hand and heel hook the first hold. Move right foot up face and catch the schist lip(s). Left hand works the series of small indent crimps that are sharp up the arête. Sharp fun and is only V1!! The ladies really love Colonal Angus... ...[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
