Description 

Starts just right of Rip Van Winkle on obvious ripples then moves up onto the super rounded arete on the merest of features, then head left to anchor of Rip Van Winkle. It is definitely thin but all there. Good intro to hard smearing.


Location 

This is the obvious bolted route on the arete right of Rip Van Winkle.

Note: this climb is located on the right side wall -- a little wall just past the walk up to the top of the main cliff.


Protection 

2 eyebolts to anchors. Top rope with Rip Van Winkle's anchors.

If anybody knows anything about this route (like who made the first ascent or the route's name), let me know and I'll add it.

Thanks,

Jim

This route was bolted in 2010, at the same time the top anchors were redone on the main wall. I did the first LEAD ascent of the line, though it may have been soloed in the past (anyone?). The Boston Rocks guide lists it as a 5.11 "No Name", but so it doesn't feel left out, let's call it "Slip von Winkle."
