Description 

The test piece of Devil's Den bouldering, complete with a fingertip crack, non-existent feet, and a hard crux. Sit start at the left end of the crack on the two good crimps and traverse right until the crack disappears. Make a hard move up and right to gain the next crack, either with a heinous cross or an easier dyno and continue right into better holds.

Location 

This problem is on the Dust boulder, near the center of the Den. Follow the trail to Throng, then head towards the massive boulder immediately behind it. This crack is hard to miss.

Protection 

Multiple pads & a spotter

Finally got on this thing tonight, not the best conditions, but it's very clean from some western mass love I believe. I always wrote this thing off (guidebook says 'testpiece of devil's den bouldering) as a footless traverse to a weird drop off, but this is actually amazing. The deadpoint/dyno is incredibly precise, and the moves afterwards seem to be even harder. Had no beta, and I suck at sussing beta, so I could be missing something but it seems like a straightforward right hand huck to a high left foot, left hand cross, to a very difficult right hand stab and cut feet.

Always walked by this like 'i'll try this weird 'dropoff' someday', glad I (we) stopped tonight for sure. Will be back.

Atypical of Pawtuckaway.

You can see Tyler almost sending this in one of the Pawtuckaway Project videos that we made. Yah, the beta is pretty much what you've described. And it's hard and doesn't let up until the final jugs. But yes, a cool and overlooked line.
