This route is on the face about 4-5 feet left of "The Bone", which is the crack route to the right of Pusherman Wall. The crack is off. Step up onto some blocks, climb up the chunky face to reach an undercling about 2 feet across. From there, it's pretty easy climbing up to a horizontal crack a couple feet below the top.

We found this route in Boston Rocks, 2nd edition, p. 103. There is not much beta there, just a rough drawing.


The route is about 4-5 feet left of the crack route, "The Bone". The bottom is a cluster of blocks where the face is broken up. Currently they are covered in paint, but it's not slippery and doesn't hinder climbing. Start on the blocks, and aim for the broad undercling, straight up.

You can top out or lower down.


Top rope. We used the anchor that we'd set up for "The Bones". Just beware the pendulum as you go higher. Use long slings, the trees are 20 feet or so back.
