Overly Hung boulder is the boulder made famous in Chuck Fryberger's Friction Addiction. I believe there are a few routes up it but still looking for more information if anyone has it. Rusty & Mike Lewis got the F.A. on the easier version in the later 1980's. The Lewis brothers toppled the sizeable flake that was perched precariously above and to the right.

Knife In A Gun Fight V8 7B  South Dakota : The Needles Of Rushmore : ... : Overly Hung Boulder
Knife In A Gun Fight was made famous in the movie Friction Addiction : Black Hills Gold. Chuck Fryberger put up the first ascent and many still talk about his static dyno to the top. Start to the left corner holds are good. move up and then traverse over to the huge hold in the middle of the boulder. From here match your feet to gain upward progress. Hanging on tiny crystals towards the top dyno to the top. Top hold is good if caught right....[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
