Ward Smith did the straight up arete on the left side of the main face (no name that I know of so we imaginateively called it Ward's Arete). The other lines that you did may very well be FA's, so go ahead and give them names etc., and any other lines / boulders you can come up with names for. We can always correct them later if need be. Dave Quinn or I did the overhanging orange face on the boulder in back. It needs a name though.
The arete , I think, was Ward's first route in the area. There is a funny story around it. Ward, and maybe Chris end Ed Esmond had rediscovered the place, but Ward was keeping it's location secret from me, afraid that I would let the cat out of the bag. A little pissed off, I said to myself "Some friend you are! I'm going to find them my self, you F'er". Not really knowing Pawtuckaway, I looked at a map trying to figure where boulders might be, then used my intuition. I didn't even know what entrence he had used. Anyway, somehow I picked the right entrence and ended up parking in the exact right spot, first time. I then hiked in some and sat down on my pad in the sun and meditated. When I got up it was like I could feel exactly where they were and I went directly to the boulders. When I saw the arete I knew I was at the right spot because I recognized his workmanship cleaning the boulder and reinforcing a handhold, later confirmed. It was a really cool experience.
