Boulder with classic routes. Good landings this boulder is rut next to The scenic Boulder. Bo Fuks has a classic line up the middle with fun movement and a good mantle on top. Climbed in his tennie shoes hence the name. There is also an amazing arête on the northwest corner.

Beautiful smooth arête almost dyke like. Good body movement and a little bit of lay backing get you off the ground. Work the dyked arête to the top about 5 ft from the top to a tricky mantle.As you go higher it gets tricky. Great Problem! Has to be in the top 3 arête boulder problems in The Hills....[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
