Great boulder with some very good, very powerful problems. A little hard to find but definitely worth the search.

Getting There 

Click "Aerial photo" and then pull up on the map and a pointer is right on the boulder.
If you are facing Crystal Meth turn left 90 degrees. Walk up to the back side of the next block. The Bicep Wall is hard to miss.
If you are facing The Fat Lady, trend up and right until you reach a small 10-15 foot tall cliff band. In the middle of this cliff band are a few steps to get on top. Once on top, immediately turn left. Hike straight, going under a fallen tree. You should run into it eventually.

Logistics V8 7B  South Dakota : The Needles Of Rushmore : ... : The Bicep Wall
One of the most diverse boulder problems in the Black Hills. Starts with your right hand on the obvious low edge in the middle of the face and left on a very small pinch. Get a bad heel hook and head up into the finish of the Bicep Traverse. If your heel doesn't stick on the first move, try on another shoe. This turned out to be the key for the first and second ascents. The best problem on the wall and one of the best problems in the Old Baldy vicinity!!!...[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
