Pusherman Wall Rock Climbing
A bad, blurry Polaroid photo of Bob Van Belle on H...
This is fun crag with interesting problems on fun rock. This crag, while short, is quite wide. It would provide a very challenging girdle traverse for someone. At times, you can lose the sense that you are in a metropolitan area while climbing here. Technique wins over brute strength at this crag.
Apparently, to the left of Posherman Wall is The Cave, a fun 7 foot cave.

This crag is just north of the temple. Again, do not park at the temple. You can walk across the temple parking. Head north on a dirt road. This is the first crag you encounter.

Start back in the cave on fantastic juggy underclings with decent feet on the wall. Power out of the cave using roof beta to a hard cross move on the small arete feature. Once gaining the seam, traverse left to a very tricky mantle topout for the grade. Thank goodness it isn't highball!Starting further back in the cave may add a grade. This is a super classic climb that gives us in Boston a little taste of roof climbing, and is totally uncharacteristic for Hammond Pond and a very worthy tick for...[more] Browse More Classics in MA

I believe the route I did is on this wall but not sure. If so, it seems to be a new line which I want to post as a FA; however, I want to make sure it is not already taken. It was done at night so not sure if I am at the right area. It is the huge boulder north of the Temple area which has some graffiti on it. It's short and only 4-5 moves.
P.S. There was no chalk or sense that anyone had sent this line or tried it.

Certainly post it. Regarding an FA, unless it's V10+, it is extremely likely it's been sent before. Even if was V10+, there is a really good chance it's been sent. Folks have been climbing here since the beginning, the very beginning.
