Spic 'n Span - Span

V0-1, Boulder, 10 ft (3 m),  Avg: 1 from 1 vote
FA: unknown
S Dakota > Rapid City Area > Rock Maze > Carrier Boulder

Description

(i'm just assigning names to this boulder/routes to serve as place holders on mp.com, this is not a fa or new problem as i'm sure these both have been climbed many times in many ways) Sit start with hands matched on crimpy rail and a left foot heel hook up high. Pull hard with the heel hook and go left hand for small sidepull high and left. Stand up into this and then span over with the right hand to another side pull. Step up and go left hand for the lip and top out. there are many variations possible on this face.

Location

when looking at the thelonius traverse on the carrier boulder you should see a small corridor on the right, squeeze through here and you will be looking at span.
