This is a polished section of the Quarries just to the right of the J Face. The rock can be quite slick. There are some old bolt anchors on top which can be backed up with a #8 BD wire on the lefts side of the top. There are some old bolts and an old tree 20 feet back from the right side of the top.

This is a great route to figure out how to smear, because simply if you don't figure it out, you won't climb the route. This starts smooth and less-than-vertical. Then, it gets smoother and more vertical. By the mid to upper part, you are asking yourself, "what the heck is keeping me attached?" A beer for anyone who flashes this route who doesn't already climb 5.11....[more]   Browse More Classics in MA
