Can't believe nobody's mention Zig-Zag Crack yet. Absolute classic for New England or anywhere really.

Super Crack, first year bouldering in the 70s I was really stoned (high school you lnow) blasted out of the car and climbed it while my friends were seting up a top rope.  I looked down from the crux to a pointy rock that would have split me apart and somehow clawed through the crux bug eyed with fear.  My friends couldn't do it on.a toprope.  Hands down, dumbest and luckiest moment in my climbing career.
That’s awesome. Were the moves worth the hype?

You do realize that this is the Lincoln Woods Supercrack, not THE Supercrack....

Say what you will about the rest of this area but, Hammond Pond has a phenomenal v4 in the Hermit's Cave.  Hepatitis is great too at v5ish.
Also, +1 for Overlooked

Adirondack Park Bouldering by Justin Sanford. And as of Dec you could get it at Rock and Snow.


A Canadian based store has 7 in stock still, I don’t know the conversion but it might be a slight upcharge though. The latest update on Justin’s blog was summer 2019 that he was out of stock. I might reach out to him to see if he plans on reprinting them, if not I might make an attempt at expanding MP into an adequate resource for Dacks bouldering. As for now, here’s that Canadian link. https://www.verticallstore.com/Adirondack_Park_Bouldering/p4546831_19221742.aspx

Seems like Ward did all the scary routes no one else wanted to.

I think it’s more like Ward did all the routes everyone wanted to, he just did them first.

I think youre both prob correct. It would be great to hear these storys from the original Rhody Loadys on a podcast sometime. Anyone agree?
