Description 

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.

Luke Childers on the technically powerful and polished lip moves that link the (SDS) of "Carrera GT (V10)" to the finishing section of "Carrera (V8)."  Much better climbing than I had expected!!  I give it stars!!

If you ever need practice turning the lip of a roof with no holds, then this is the route for you. (Also, you have to enjoy humping rocks.) Start underneath the boulder on underclings and make your way to the slopers topside. Squeeze the life out of the boulder and mantle over the bulge. Surprisingly physical route with technical footwork.There is also a stand start, simply called Carrera (without the GT), using a right undercling and a right-leaning sloper/crimp at the lip and it goes at V9...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

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.
