THE man ... you know who

This problem was put up in/about 1961 by every boulderer's godfather, John Gill.

August 31, 2003: Brian Gulbransen on Center Yellow Wall, Campground Boulder, Sylvan Lake, Custer State Park, SD. This was my first day of bouldering in the Black Hills. Brian pointed out a few of the classics at Sylvan Lake on this day and showed me around the Rock Maze a couple days later. This began a 3 year love affair with everything that is The Black Hills culminating with my marriage in Spearfish Canyon on September 3, 2006. As always, John Gill's problems here would be obvious classics ANYWHERE.
