BETA PHOTO: Carrier Boulder's overhanging Southwest face


This is one of the tallest walls in the Rock Maze. The color of the rock is similar to that of "Golden Wall," but this particular boulder features a severely overhanging portion that stretches roughly twenty feet in length on the South side. The Yellow Wall area on the West side of the boulder stands fifteen to twenty feet high and is vertical to slightly overhanging with a tuft of rock hanging out at the top. This wall is relatively blank minus some large holds on the left portion and an obvious sidepull. The tell-tale mark of this boulder is the "Sargent 2000" engraved on the rock.

Getting There 

Enter the Rock Maze South Central Area, meandering to the right for a couple minutes. This boulder is an outward lying boulder. Look for the severely overhanging portion on the Southwest side.

Unknown V5 V5 6C  SD : Rock Maze : Carrier Boulder
On Southwest face of Carrier Boulder, there is a larger sidepull with a lot of chalk on it. This is the crux hold of this problem. Sit-start low on next to nothing--right hand on a decent one pad, three finger pocket in the right hand, left hand will be on a miniscule crimper. Work out the feet on your own, I guess. I've seen and heard different beta for the feet. Pull and throw to the underclingy sidepull with the left hand, and move with the right hand up to the juggy pocket.Note: V5 may...[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
