This is the secret to Farley climbing. It has superb rock quality with some amazing trad and mixed lines: from short perfect splitter 12 crack to dicey slab mixed routes to an overhanging 13 offwidth.

Getting There 

From the Amphitheatre, follow the trail steeply up left, continue past the opening to the Bat Cave and on up. Once you are up the switchbacks, the climbs go out to the right. Cracks like ?Yosemite Crack? and Barn Door are just a couple of the classic lines up on the 2nd tier.

Overhanging 13 offwidth, as in- 5.13 offwidth? Barf. Any more beta on this rig?

Edit- just posted route on this page.

It's legit, Jon Lavelley did the FA in 2001 and called it Bullet Proof. neb.com news has more info: newenglandbouldering.com/news/... interestingly, this video of someone trying to onsight this offwidth just showed up on youtube:

I hate to disappoint Mr. Lavelley, but, to my knowledge, I did the first free ascent of this offwdth in 1989. Free on lead.

Why are routes getting added to this area? They should be removed.... Access is touchy enough as it is...
