Most defined protruding central bulge up the traverse wall. Easy in fat conditions, but early in the season seems thin and delicate with a few potential mixed moves....[more]   Browse More Classics in NH

Nice photo. It looks nice and fat now. I think a forwards and backwards traverse would be a good exercise. It was a little thin when I went out back in early December. A traverse was not really possible yet (as you can see from the photos), but I was able to go up about 5 different ways. The "pillar" (sort of) with the broken foot was my last one, and definitely felt a little sketched out at the top. It was about an inch thick with water running behind it, and the top offs are sometimes a challenge when there is only wet moss and rock to work with.
