Looking up "Harvard." The "big flake thing" in the description can just be seen poking out of the dark cave area just below the top.

Pitch 1 of "Sudoriferous" - climb up the face close to the corner, stemming off the blocks to your right where possible.

The bottom of "Blue Route." The crux is where the rope disappears over the top. You can see the "Intertwine" crack off to the right.

This is the pentagonal chunk of rock which is center-right of Snacktime Crag. "Oreo" goes up right of the peak of this rock, over the bulgy rock, and straight up from there.

The start of "Devil Dog" at Snacktime Crag. This photo shows the left half of the pentagonal rock chunk. Climb up the easy ledge, to the bulge of rock above, which throws you off balance. Make your way up over the bulge (I mantled) and you get to a short but shear face with small crimps.

"Yodel" is about a foot to the right of the vertical crack at the right side of this photo. Stay right and top out.

To climb "Twinkie", go up the middle of the prominent large block in this photo. The 6-inch horizontal crack is about 10 feet up. <br /> <br />It's hard to distinguish, but attached to the large central block is a smaller rectangular block, protruding from the left side. It sticks out about a foot. It's so far left that I think it must be off route, but I used it to get up the block and get to the top.

The green line indicates the approximate location of "It's the Real Thing". Note the blocky start, the undercling at about the midpoint, and the horizontal crack up top. The rope is actually set up on "The Bone", the crack to the right.

The green rope approximately goes over the route called "Yes!". I believe the arÍte is on, so don't feel like you have to climb up the blank face. Notice the large triangular block. To the right of that block is an 8-inch crack which you see as you approach Pusherman Wall from the right.

Rough outline of End Route. I'm kind of vague on the correct line for the route on the topmost half of the route.

At the bottom of the photo you see the rusty horizontal streaks in the rock and the shallow dihedral, just above the big block (not shown) at the base of the climb. The route meanders. It may be that you can go straight up instead of right; the guidebooks are not clear.

Float Like a Butterfly follows the light drizzle of paint in the middle of the photo. Climb up slab to the right of the "Kilroy" graffiti. When you reach the bulging rock feature about 20 feet up, you are good. Continue straight up over the giant blocks, towards the jutting high block where your anchor goes over the edge (at the "AB" graffiti in the photo).

The green rope to the left is on Fallout; the reddish rope to the right is on The Cave. Right in the middle you see the blocky saw-toothed climb of Shark's Tooth. Go straight up.

The Cave, G Wall, Quincy Quarries. This climb is super-fun! Rated a 5.5 in Boston Rocks guide, but more like a  5.6 to me. Let your eye follow the rope up from the bottom; you'll see it running through the branches of a small tree growing on a block. Getting up onto that ledge without grabbing the tree is the crux.
