This climb is very good. I just wish it wasn't so sharp. But, that's Blair! Oct 30, 2014

I thought I had climbed some sharp problems, being a regular at Pawtuckaway, but this climb made me realize that I in fact, had not climbed sharp problems. This is a great climb, it really is, but bring tons of skin, and don't expect to have any left for anything else. Climbed through the crux, but left hand crimp-finger-stacking a protruding quartz crystal was too much for my pointer finger after some other climbs at blair. Psyched to get back to it. Jul 16, 2015
