To the right of the third class descent trail is a small, steep, 16 foot tall wall where the blunt arete is located.

1. Blunt Arete, V4.

This is the start of the wall and as you walk to the right, the cliff turns back away from your to become a 20 foot tall, slabby section with TR suitable for young children.

2. M Slab, 5.3.
3. Hobbit Roof V3.

Then, following this to the right, the climbing gets steeper, blockier, and is about 90 feet long and about 25- 35 feet tall.

4. Layback Corner, 5.8.
5. Big Block, V2.
6. Mantle Block, unrated.

The next three climbs start under a sharp hand crack through an overhang.

7. M Crack, 8, 1p, 20', TR.
8. M Weave, 6, 1p, 20', TR.
9. Wanderlust, 7, 1p, 20', TR.
10. Hanging Buttress, 10, 1p, 30', TR.

Featured Route For M Wall
All routes are drawn approximately as described in Boston Rocks by Doucette and Ruff. M Crack is in red. It has a harder variation (dashed lines) to the left. I'm not completely sure where it tops out. I don't know if you are supposed to go over the small roof at the top or around it.
