The Inner Outlet is the large formation hulking over Sylvan Lake. It is the nearest to the lake of the two huge monoliths that tower over the area. The Inner Outlet has some classic moderate trad lines, as well as some harder bolted routes. Classic Crack is one of the finest climbs in South Dakota, and shouldn't be missed by anyone.
From Sylvan Lake, walk along the trail on the near side of the lake. Walk underneath the giant chockstone, and head left. The Inner Outlet becomes obvious after walking around the ridge of rock behind the dam area.

If you enjoyed such classics as Baba Cool, Meat is Murder, and Goldberry Lane, be sure not to miss this Yahne classic. Ron put this up over the course of two years on lead from free stances, and even took a few whippers with power drill in hand. Yet another Yahne masterpiece! Start 20 feet right of Classic Crack. Clip the first bolt close to the ground and make some tenuous moves to get established on the face.
