This area has some of the best climbs in the area, like Yippey-Kay-Yay and never kiss a sleeping wolf

To get here, park in the same place as you would to go to Big Picture Gully(by the Damn), then go across damn and go right down stream. Follow the trail next to the river until you get to a some stacked rocks and there is some yellow tape on a tree(if its still there, havent checked lately)which will be on your left, then follow the trail until you get to thewall and the indian wars wall is right and all others are left starting with Lady in Red wall, which has Yippy-Kay-Yay.

This route sees far too much traffic and good times to be only three star. It is soon to be a classic, if it is not one already. Enjoy HUGE reaches on HARD TO SWALLOW holds that make their way up a BIG blonde prow feature. Scramble up some more blonde featureless rock to a GIGANTIC roof and DANGLE in mid-air using a slit crack and the right footwork. Invert your ass and heel hook. Grunt and grovel your way up the slab to the anchors. A BIG, HARD route that is guaranteed to make you walk funny th...[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota

If by some freak accident someone gets bored of the routes on the Mohican, many boulders lay beneath the Gully of Biblical Proportions waiting for first ascents. The easiest way to get to them is to hike about half way up the trail to the Mohican always looking for a small rock cairn on your left. When you see it follow the faint trail for about 50 yards and you should run into the boulders.

Bouldering right under the best wall in the Canyon...there is only a few ways such a thing can happen. Fuks found them. Cronin got lost on the way down to his car due to Alzheimer's and started climbing on the rocks mistakenly, or McNabb was finally told that you can't pull on the nylon straps of quickdraws as a way of ascension. Whats up guys...just thought I would say hi....and where are those two really good routes? One was Battlecry and the other one to the left was called Ricochet or something. Perfect lines.
