Comments: This is one of the best problems of its kind on Cape Ann. Really balancy and technical. Sort of V4 climb for the V6+ climber. Be careful of skating down the wet slab landing when you come off.

Comments: Grade might be a little height-dependent. If you can reach the high hold, it's easier.

Comments: Screaming Pelican, V3, climbs the arete on the left using holds not quite on the arete.

Comments: Another view of the Crucible Arete. The sit to the arete starts on the slabby face at right with a crimp (not visible). Note the arete and boulder are taller and steeper than they appear here.

Comments: It's the footholds down low that looked like they have seen a lot of abuse, but having said that, the route looks in better shape than I remember.

Comments: If you are looking for hard projects, you should check out the main face of this boulder. The rock quality is amazing.

Comments: I put this up after talking to Joel and after getting a few emails about hard routes and projects in the area. It is a bit of relic, so it would be good to get a repeat of this problem to confirm the location. Joel reckons it's pretty hard for the grade but may be a little easier for taller climbers.

Comments: I got the above info from Joel Brady. I have to say the mantle onto the face looks absolutely heinous.

Comments: It would be good to see it repeated, because some of the holds may have crumbled. Last time I was out there, I even wondered whether it had been chipped, because it looked much easier than when I had tried it before (but I am in no way a double-digit climber).

Also there is possible project crimp line to the right of this. Probably harder.

Comments: Access update: I drove up New Way Lane this morning, and it looks like the No Parking signs are no longer up in the tiny parking area.

I would still exercise a lot of caution parking there. There is room for one maybe two cars. Do not block the gate or park on the road. I would avoid parking here entirely in the summer when people are suspected of swimming and the lot can be filled. Boulderers have been ticketed for swimming just because their cars were parked here.

You may still have to de... more >>

Comments: Real shame that this boulder isn't closer to the road as the routes on it are excellent and the climbing pretty unique. Great rock quality too.

Comments: Access is unclear. Last time I was down on New Way Lane (maybe 3 months ago), the "No Parking Emergency Police Ban" signs were still up, though they were faded. I don't how long "Emergency Police Bans" are supposed to last. It's been two years. I tried contacting the Gloucester police a year ago or so with no response. Ultimately it sucks, but I wouldn't park there.

Few people really boulder here, so it doesn't matter that much, but it's shame because the Dyke's area probably has the best boul... more >>

Comments: According to the Sykes book, this route was freed with one point of aid by Neal Cannon and Alison Osius in 1984. The fifth pitch is the crux at 5.11 X A0.
