Way fun, little problem.


Maybe not as classic as the Right Eliminator problems, but this problem is perhaps among the best for the grade in the state. Start as for Standard Route, but crank to the large slopey holds out left. Figure out some feet that work for you, then lunge for a positive hold at the lip. Your feet will probably swing wildly, so a spotter is definitely nice.


Crash pad. Spotters are nice for the move to the lip.

Well........I find this boulder to be one of my favorites Two move [lunge] or not. I also find Carter a great place to climb. Few crowds, lots of Dakota sandstone, nice vistas.

Hmm, I couldn't resist this chunck of rock, obviously chalked, and tauntingly obvious above the new parking area.

But the problems didn't suit my style at all. They start high, have many hold choices, but no aesthetic lines.

However, I can see that there are various choices for 2-3 move dynamic overhanging sequences here, and that's gotta be worth at least ** stars.

Amazingly dynamic moves unlocked this sequence for me.

Joshua, no aesthetic lines with many hold choices? Are you sure you were at the right boulder?

Well I must chirp in again. This rock is obviously popular. It has had tons of chalk on it since I started climbing here back in '92. I understand that people have different tastes. I'm old I guess, John Gill invented the lunge and frankly, I love problems that involve the dynamic. That too is what it took for me to succeed on three of the four problems here. For me, if I go to Carter and don't climb this, I feel like I missed out on something. Allen
