This is a sweet boulder that is of the same caliber as the "Seul Avec Dieux" Boulder. Really good rock, but the landings are a little strange--protectable, but strange (kind of slopes downhill). There is no real danger of smacking a rock or a tree, if I remember correctly. The two problems that I am aware of are on the Eastern side of the boulder.

Getting There 

See directions and pictures for findng this boulder. The "Black Roughy" Boulder is downhill and to the Southeast of the "Orange Roughy" Boulder. At the "Orange Roughy" Boulder, walk downhill through the gully and when you get to some Aspen trees, you are close to the boulder. It's on the left-hand side of the small gully. It sits to the South of a larger, orange-ish boulder that is pretty tall. There is deadfall around the Eastern edge, too.

Begin sitting in front of the obvious chalked-up block. Move up and cross-through to an undercling with the right hand. The left hand then goes to a slopey crimp in the flaring seam, then right hand up to the same level on a crimp, right foot to the starting hold. Next move: bring the right hand to a REALLY bad sloper-crimp, bring the l...[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
