I put this same comment in the COMMENTs for the crag's 'general' site, but everyone seems to be commenting on this photo's site, so I repeat it here.

WOW ! Someone else went in there! Back in 1965 I "spyed" this cliff from the Bonds and took a compass bearing. I called it the "SouthWest Shoulder of Mt Garfield". The next summer ( 1966) I convinced a couple of my school climbing buddies to march in. It took all day to get to a place to camp.
On 4th of July weekend 1966 we established a basecamp on the stream that flows about 1/3 to 1/2 mile from the cliff. (A BEAUTIFUL Campsite!, I can still remember the flat camping and fine pool.) A compass bearing of 26 deg. ( Mag.) brought us to the face, where we climbed a 80 ft ( +/-) chimney to a ledge. The ledge was wide. ( 2-3 feet??) A beautiful crack led upwards for ..?? 75-80 ft? THIS I free climbed and aided (mixed) to the top. No one followed, that day in Boston the temp. set a record for the hottest July day on record, at least, that's my recollection. [Maybe it was only the hottest 4th of July on record, to that time.] Most of the (soft iron) pins are probably still in place. Looking at a "blow-Up" of the photo with routes marked, I am 99% sure the four "P's" (pitons, I assume) on the right end of the mid-height ledge are from that ascent. [This was done prior to the "Eastern-Wilderness-Act".]
It was written up in Appalachia's CLIMBs section, probably in summer of 1967 edition.
