I've never climbed it, but I believe this is Touri...

Description 

The last great problem, tried by all and WALKED by Lynn on the ffa. A striking line that unfortunately has a bit a of a painful crux.

Location 

Starts the same as Camber (in fact the usual Camber start is that of TT). Reasonable crack and face climbing to a very obvious crux/pain boulder problem. Easier climbing to the top.

Protection 

Standard rack. Anchor from the "handcrack" atop the buttress.

Such a painful crux. It's too bad. This would be one of the best lines in NH, if only the moves were fun.

Agreed Jay. I thought for quite a while that I just couldn't do it, but it was more of a pain thing.

TT was an aid route that was pegged agian (partially) during free attempts. It was nailed again when things got serious.

I i remember (Jay) 2 VERY pain ful.partial jams compromise the crux

I remember the jams being painful because the rock is raspy and really bites into the skin. Maybe tape would help.

TT appears to be pretty spectacularly lichen-y these days.
