Description

This is a fine crack line (that starts a few feet off the ground) on the right side of the Lower Wall. I recall learning basics about crack technique, learning to lead, learning to solo on this same crack. It's so fun. It got 3 out of 3 stars in the old Boston Rocks. After all these years, it still brings back fond memories. Here is a nice shot from the MIT photo contest for your viewing pleasure.

Location

This is on the right side of the Lower Walls.

Protection

Mostly 1-2" gear.

To those confused by the route description and not in possession of a Boston Rocks guide, this is the crack climb that starts about 6-8 feet off the ground, with a cool slabby start involving a (optional) mono pocket. The continuous splitter finger crack to the right is The Cleft (5.4). Fantastic climbs both. Aug 3, 2013

Love this line. Makes for a great trad lead. The bottom moves are super fun, and then up top it gets fairly demanding for a 5.6. Oct 9, 2014
