Description 

This new area has many easy problems and some harder problems as well. They are good and have, for the most part, great landings. Check them out.

Getting There 

When you get to the T, turn right as though you were going to Baldy. Go about 3 minutes hiking about 40 yards past the Wayword Boulders and look to your left(the boulders are on the right). When you see a short overhanging corner you should stop and turn about 45 degrees to your right. Hike uphill for about 4 minutes through a small boulder(to short to climb)field. As of late there is no trail. The first boulder you come to is The Duchess Boulder.

This good problem starts with your left hand jammed in the slot and right hand gloming the arete. Do one move up to and amazing roof hold then left out the cave. One of the hardest parts to this problem is avoiding the rock behind you. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
