On the FA, belayed by Pete Fasoldt

Description 

Was project X3 in Jeff's book.
The start is the crux. Bouldery moves on sea polished crimps go into radically steep fins and underclings. Continue bouldering out a body length horizontal roof on a stalactite tooth feature; very strange (V8ish?). After moving through the sea polished roof and statactite, climb through an amazing pocket covered face on a slightly overhanging wall to a another roof. Boulder through this roof into a technical corner. Hang on to the top. Absolutely amazing. No doubt one of the best 5.13's in Maine and the NE! Full value.

Warning: fix a line on Transatlantic, bring some jugs, know the surf report. Not affected by tide, but affected when the swell is pumping. Stick clip the first bolt or hang them on the way down on rappel.
