Description 

Irie Heights is a nice cluster of boulders that often get overlooked. It's name comes from the namesake boulder the Irie Heights boulder. This block has good problems like Virgin Martini and Fleshwound. North Nostril Cave has great pumpy roof problems. It also holds possible ONE of the hardest dyno problems in the Midwest Trogdor V9. Also, this area includes The Calm Gulley with ONE of Baldys hardest The Perfect Storm which is also one of the only V11s at Baldy. Scary Trees, Amish Power, Groovy, Jaba, and mission Impossible are all in this area.

The Cheat V7 7A+ SD : Mount Rushmore National Mem... : ... : North Nostril Cave
"The Cheat" begins on the far right side of the "Nostril Cave" on two pretty decent holds and moves up and right to the lip following somewhat good holds using a few heel hooks, drop-knees, and cross-throughs, as well as a hideous gaston/pinch in the toughest portion and a scarey top-out to boot.See the "Nostril Cave" directions and photos for accessing this particular problem, and look to the beta photo for the top-out location....[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
