Description 

We were gonna call this " Just Like You Said it Would be" 'cause we were both very into Sinead at the time. An absolute classic line that K and I trained HARD for. A real testament to the late Mr Karl as he said it would go "FOR SURE". We did thousands of feet of 12/13 at Quincy to prep for this.

Location 

A bit right of Condesecendor, the quite obvious , VERY thin slab.

Could this be the hardest slab in the Northeast?

Well i know i have only done one harder and that was in Quincy. it was about V6 ? and only 15' long. Stretched is MUCH harder than any other slab that I know of in NE. Some aid routes , when freed, will be easier than this.

Someone should put bolts on this, so that it can be a proper lead. John, what do you think?

I would not have a problem with that. Stopping to clip will be fun. There is another route we never finished on Cannon that is a bit easier as well, needs 2 more bolts. Anyone want a 12c -ish slab ?

Maybe I'll hike the drill up there one day. It will be a good leg training for the route. John, I say post up the 12c.

just putting it out there but J.Johnson established a very fucking hard V7 slab in pawtuckaway near the firetower. Wild shit.

Well I would hope that a harder slab has been done in the past 20 years !? There are plenty of 5.13 and up slabs to do in NE , including several on cannon.

John--

I'm stoked on trying this climb next time I'm in NH. A few questions for you.

Is there a bolted anchor for setting up the top rope? If not, what gear would I need? What's the easiest/best line to get to the anchor to set up the top rope? Does it share an anchor with one of the other lines?

I might even give your line at Quincy a go!

Thanks.
