An obvious crack system at the right side of the smooth wall at the left end of the cliff. Climb to a ledge and then descend right. Often TRed but leadable.


Just right of Animal Crack, left of a broken area.


Standard traprock rack

I climbed here years ago after college. I led a route in the middle of the face on the North End. I remember climbing up about 15-20' to a small horizontal crack and placed one or two small stoppers. The remaining face to the top had no gear and was quite thin. Anyone know what this route is? I would think it's 5.9 or so. I had two terribly sprained thumbs and couldn't use them at all. Difficult face climbing as I always wrap my thumbs around and on top of index fingers when crimping.

A local hardman back then commented when I topped out that it was a recent pretty bold new route. Who was that guy? Nichols??? A well known hard climber in CT... This had to be back in '81 or so. A friend took a whipper from almost the top and nearly hit the ground, a good 25' or so. How bad is my memory? What is the height of this North End face? Thanks! Jul 12, 2009

The middle of the North end has a 5.13/14 proj along a very thin seam and water streak. Paul - I think you were to the right of middle on a climb that's now a 5.10/11 i think called the cage or something. . . Nov 17, 2011
