At the farthest left hand side of The Mohican is a small, but tempting area with 7 routes that will make you sweat, bleed and cry. Come visit a level of personal hell that will make you realize that pain and pleasure are one in the same. Repent, sinner, these are all routes with your number on them. Come enjoy these tasty, little indulgences.

Getting There 

This is a hike that would make Moses proud. A guaranteed day of complete and total privacy and no one else in sight. Crowds simply don't exist here. From the parking lot, walk up the first trail (Trail 1) and turn left when you reach the thin traverse trail. Walk past The Headshop wall, past The Asylum and keep going, going and going. The trail gets really narrow and hard to follow, but what do you expect for the road less traveled? Look over your right shoulder every once in a while and ask, "Are we there yet?" The answer will be no, keep going, just like all those people who made Moses wander around for 40 years because of the 7 sins they committed. The cliff side will disappear and turn into forest for what seems like forever. When you begin to feel as if God has forsaken you, The Sins Wall will suddenly appear as a series of black and tan streaks through these trees. There is a left and right wall. See pictures below.

Great moves! Good stone! Oddly enough, rests don't come easy on this one unless you really know what to do. Killer layback sequence towards the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
