Description 

This is one of the finer routes here. It ascends an obvious crack that is typically laybacked. It just begs to be climbed. The crux is mid-height where it jogs left. Continue up. Enjoy. One of the nicest short routes in New England, IMHO.


Location 

This is on the right side of the crag. Click on this if you can't figure out which line.


Protection 

Cams, hexes.

Zipper. Difficult to tell what the belayer is doing, or if he is even belaying.

This would be a noted classic if it were anywhere else. As it is, one of the best routes at the grade in the region.

Thought this was a fantastic route, wished it went on for another 100 feet. Anchors up top currently. I will say, while the climbing itself didn't feel difficult, stopping to place gear from a friction/layback spiced things up a bit, but I'm hardly a veteran leader. I'd come back just to do this again.

Great route to work on building confidence free soloing

Great fun route, got my first lead on this! My friend had a single set of stoppers and placed a few prices, then I led it and placed the rest. EDIT: he had one solid stemmed cam he got second hand which he placed as the first piece, a #1 I think.
