Description

This is a small face once above water across from M Face. It is also known as the Fortress. It is one of the steeper walls here. It has at least one aid route and apparently more....

Apparently, from Boston Rocks II it goes L->R:

A. Blocky Routes, 9, 1p, TR.
B. Sloping Staircase, 10, 1p, 35', bolts.
C. Steep Book, 9 or 10, 1p, 60', TR.
D. Steep Arete, 11, 1p, TR.
E. Thank You, Scott, 12- R, (formerly Fire Escape, A2), 1p, 75', gear.
F. Crimp Fest, V4, 20'.
G. Diving Board, 8, TR.
H. Unknown 5.10, 10, 1p, 40', gear or TR.

?. Freezing Frenchman Strikes While The Iron Is Hot, 2p, A3?

Sadly, Swingles Quarry was filled in and reduced its height from 75' to 20'. Darn!

Getting There

This lies above the former Granite Rail Quarry. It was hard to see, now with the fill-in, you can casually stroll right up to it.

Anyone have any info on the "undocumented climbs" to the right of Diving Board? Hopped on the middle one yesterday and really enjoyed it. Jul 17, 2016
