The GateKeeper boulder is a semi hidden boulder until you look for it. It sits right of the trail a few minutes past Wayward Valley. As the blocks start to appear in the middle of the valley and trail look to your left up the hill a couple of feet and you should see this boulder. Look for a smooth boulder with a horizontal crack. Addys Arete boulder is to the left of this block.

Getting There 

Hike to Wayward valley. Hike about 3-4 minutes pass until you get to the next couple of blocks with easy warm ups. Look up the hill to your left and you should see this block.

SDS on a small jigsaw puzzle looking crimp. Move up to the first horizontal seam slopers. From here adjust bad feet. You can either just power through to the top or use the small crimp out left and then mantle. Short powerful and good!...[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
