K Wall (aka M Face) Rock Climbing
David Eckels climbing in the calm before the storm...
There is lots of loose rock above the right side of this face. To its left is the L Face. The climbing here
was aesthetic in some ways and lends the sense you are climbing something a bit bigger. Additional graffitti has detracted from the ambience. With the big fill-in, it is much easier to access the climbing here. 200 feet of dirt sure helps. No dangling above water anymore.

: K Wall (aka M Face)
Tensile Strength climbs the line of old quarter inch bolts right of Pins. The first 3/4 of the climb is fun, fairly easy climbing. Climb a thin crack to a flake that trends up and left. Follow the sloping holds along the flake until you can pull up and stand on top of it. The crux is the blank section above. Strenuous moves on small nubbins and edges lead to the top....[more] Browse More Classics in MA
