Good fun. A shorter route for this wall, but equally good quality rock. The Crags & Lumpy Ridge's ledgendary route author Scott Kimball lured me out in hopes it was an FA, but alas the fruit had already been picked. The plumb LFD system is very, very obvious.
On the first pitch; what looks to be blank, unprotectable climbing, continues to reveal small edges, which also allow TCU placements.
Others will find that the headwall will provide many exit options at all grades.
