Description 

One of my favorite routes at Sandwich Notch. The left of the two bolted routes on the steep face. Short, with a brutal crux (HINT: A secret move guards against an onsight).
Scramble up roots to the base of the route. Technical footwork gains bigger holds at about mid route. Tiny crimping and some difficult moves at the last bolt (crux) get you to the top.

Location 

Follow the trail that skirts the base of the cliff band past "Old Boys Club," "JAG," and a few other bolted lines until the trail drops steeply down to a 60 foot tall clean, steep face with two bolted routes on it.

Protection 

4-5 bolts

  • Personal Note* The Champ and The Contender, about two hundred feet past the end of the highlander wall proper. Pass the first buttress to a second taller buttress with unique looking climbs.
