|Hillside (aka Summit Boulder Area)
Although this climb is slowly falling apart, the holds may have finally stopped exfoliating and become a solid problem - that is, nothing has fallen off lately. It climbs a short bulge at the right end of the boulder next to a tree. Sit start with both hands in the crack, move straight up on crimps.
On the North Marsh end of Tin Can Alley (3 Chimney Area), this short face is easily seen on the left if walking towards Round Pond, or on the right if walking towards the marsh.

Every hold on this climb (except for the start) feels like it is inevitably going to break at some point. Probably soon. The movement is good. The rock is terrible.
