There is a bloc in the drainage ditch right next to the road with a lone problem, cuz it's not big enought to have more problems. If you like humping boulders and climbing in stinky ditches, this is the one for you. This boulder has some unexplainable appeal, cuz no matter how crappy it is climbing in a smelly, wet ditch right next to the road, it's pretty fun pulling on these slopers!

Getting There 

Park at the mile marker 268 pullout, and it's right next to the road at the base of the gully.

Worked the (SDS) for "Carrera GT" today and did all the moves in linked sections and felt the movement to be more like V9-V10?? It feels doable with another visit or two. Still the (SDS) had quality moves and more of them than the stand start has. Much more powerful!! I give the (SDS) 3 stars!! I think it's a cool problem, and will return.
