This is definitely one of the best hard crack lines at Pawtuckaway, though it's more about your crimp strength then your crack skills.
Climb the aesthetic, arching fingertip crack from a sit on the right. After a few easy opening moves, the business begins. Footholds are few and far between, so creativity and technique are rewarded. As you near the end of the crack, stem across to the left side of the corner, breathe and then finish up the easy corner.
Finger size will play a huge role in how difficult this feels. I could barely fit my fat fingers in most of the slots on this climb which made the climbing feel very thin!
This climb is located above the Upper Cliff in the same amphitheater as 'Vulcan Tip Rip'. It is the obvious arching crack located on the right side of the wall.
Two or three pads are useful as it's a somewhat long traversing crack.

This climb is outstanding and well worth the walk up the hill.
I'll try to get some pictures/video of it soon to show off its radness.
