Description

This is, in my opinion, the best line at Carter Lake. It climbs the Northeast arete of the doughboy boulder. Start with a left hand in the obvious, fist-sized pocket on the east-facing wall and a right hand on the arete. Figure out a way to get yourself up to the sidepull above the pocket with your left hand. Now comes the hard part. You have to get yourself up the arete by slapping and finding interesting foot placements. Halfway up there's a little rest and then a scary couple of moves to the top. If you think Kahuna roof is still the best route at Carter after sending, this I'll be surprised.

A proper sit start, matched on the pocket is so obvious, but does not add to the grade.

This is indeed a great problem. Makes me want to tip over some more of the boulders at Carter and see what's under 'em. Oct 13, 2008
So yesterday when I was climbing this the left hand sidepull broke off. I left it in the pocket if someone wants to glue it back on. Not sure this thing goes without it. Sorry to all future climbers that I am such a doughboy. Dec 6, 2017
