This highball face climb up the center of a sweet amphitheater is SHARP! It's not named Vulcan Tip Rip for nothing. Crank off the ground with crisp edges and very small foot holds. Long, sick moves gain ground fast. It would not be wise to fall at the top. Despite the pain factor, this is definitely in the running for the best V3 at Pawtuckaway. It's worth the hike up here to try this problem, but make sure you have some skin on your fingertips when you do.

Definitely sharp, but quite aesthetic, sustained and fun face climbing. Worth the trip up, as are most of the lines in this area.

Be ready for some long lockoffs if you're on the shorter side as some of the moves can be a bit reachy.

Glorious jugs at the top!

This climb is great! Sharp crimps and some of the holds (at least what I used) are tough to spot right away due to lichen. Solid V4 in my opinion. Side note: bring a spotter, a fall at the top wouldn't be fun.
