You can hand traverse here with a bad feet or climb Pins slightly higher and have the seam for feet. Mantle onto a good ledge and take a good rest before the crux. From here, follow a thin seam straight up using small edges, side pulls, and a few deceptive holds in the seam. I found the climbing to be quite sequency, technical and way harder than the sur...[more] Browse More Classics in MA
