This is a large prominent boulder that is to the south of Mt. Baldy reaching roughly fifteen feet into the air. Landings are generally very good, but the northern side of the boulder hosts three highball problems that one should use a pad and spotter when attempting. The rock seems to be quite sturdy and trustworthy.

Getting There 

Upon reaching the Southern side of Mt. Baldy, look for an opening to the East of the large, prominent spire with "Where the Wild Things Are" (5.11 crack climb). To the North of this opening is the "Seul Avec Dieux" Boulder next to a really large deadfall. This boulder is also to the North of "Wrestling the Buffalo" and to the Northeast of "HydraCrack."

This problem is the boulder's namesake, and one of Baldy's all-time classics. It climbs the gently overhanging black face on the north side of the boulder, requiring tenacity and intricate footwork more than brute strength. Start standing with your left hand high on a good edge and your right hand about waist high on a good edge. High step your right foot and head up. I don't want to give too much away, half the fun of this problem is figuring out the correct sequence. Dave was alone during the ...[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
