There is a problem that starts with the sit down to Big Block then goes left to the arete and up the arete. It is fantastic, and I think it deserves classic status, but I don't know the name. If you are looking for a new problem at Carter, this is one to try.

Edit: I am told that it is called Face Wipe.
