While on this topic, it is appropriate to have a moment of silence in memory of the late, great Whaleback Crack on Cannon--now literally resting in pieces at the base.

Still standing, what about the Bridge of Kaza-dum  on Cathedral?

Cool problem! Cleaned out the topout on rappell and bouldered that by myself many years ago.

Wondering if this was something Freddie wilkenson climbed @ holts?  It does have early 2000s era bolts at the top but also sports these guys in the first big pod.

We just called it Zion Dreams. its the most authentic desert choss I have encountered in the NE. you can even use your #5 for real.   Some kind of Desert 10+???

Hewes is in Swanzey just south of Keene, so I doubt that it would be in the Chinos guide.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
