Me climbing this great hidden classic(IMHO)

Description 

Either stick clip the first bolt or climb up easily to a flake and make a reach to clip the bolt. Climb the face trending left then right past 5 old 1/2" bolts. Surmount the block(crux) and boulder above then clip an anchor. 2 More bolts will lead you to the top/trees if you want to climb the extension. Rappel off or hike off Left w/ caution.
This climb is rated 5.7 in my old paper back guide...however due to lichen and some hidden holds I say it is 5.8+.
This area as mentioned does not see much traffic but if your up for something different at PWay...give it a go..


Location 

Yellow Dog Wall. Most left bolted route.


Protection 

5 bolts and maybe a medium cam for the boulder top out...

Jeremy this route sounds and looks like Fleas 5.8+ out of the old 1995's Comprehensive Guide to Pawtuckaway Rock Climbing by the Saball's & Paul Boissonneault... food for thought

Right on Chris. 5.8+ sounds about right to me. Does the 95' book mention the fa? 99' was prob my first time on this route, usually hit it once a season along with its neighbors. Wish the hardware store bolt line to the right was not in such rough shape...
