Description [Suggest Change]

This problem may be short, but a lot of people can't get off the ground. Sit start with two slopers on the lip, the left of which is crystally, and make a crux move to the big juggy pinch in the middle of the climb. Finish straight up on crimps.

There used to be a little tree growing at the base of the climb which was not in the way. Someone ripped it out.

Two problems to the right of Burt... in the warmup area.

I think the name of this problem is wrong. It's something like 'Turkjiggistan'. FA by Joe Terravecchia. Dec 10, 2008

Still here, but not for too much longer! Laura and I are coming back to the northeast next summer for good I think. Sep 14, 2009

This must have been during his mild Borat obsession. Hey joe and jeremy. This problem is HARD.

I gave this a V7 after much thought. My reasoning is that I have tried this on the normal NH days and the crux has felt HARD to impossible. When I sent it, it was about 25 degrees with a wind chill in the low single digits and humidity around 10%, so it felt easier (felt like v6) because of the excellent friction, but this was a freaky dry day for NH. I think v7 is a more accurate grade for most conditions that NH throws at us. Nov 25, 2013

Fun little climb. Pulling on was the crux for me. I agree that v7 is more accurate, but who cares? Not a classic, but worth doing. Jul 11, 2016
