The Left Roof. The Argonaut (13a) climbs the blue ...

Description 

The Agronaut offers some old-school 80's sport climbing: crimpy and technical moves on a slightly overhanging wall. Locate the Left Roof, which is just right of Vultures. The Argonaut follows three bolts up the right side on the wall. Expect tweaky climbing on pretty good crimps, and the use of the dreaded outside edge of your boots (er, sorry, I meant shoes).

This route is one of the most consistently dry routes in New Hampshire, if not in all the country, as it ends at anchors at the base of the huge horizontal roof.

Stevie wasn't exactly an English professor, but calling this route AGRONAUT wasn't a mistake.
