Description

Aiwass may have been the first 5.12 face in NH- Anyway cool climbing on route that is NEVER done. The first pitch has a good pull around V3/4 to enter a nice corner system . Wander up a slab to the tree ledge. P3 A nice 5.9 corner to a sloping ledge. P4 A steep and fun rib with fair bolt protection. 10 +

Location

At the top of the Beelzebub /Ethereal flake. STIFF pulls up and right to a nice corner. An alternate start first done by Jimmy is down to the right, MUCH easier (11c). Past a bolt then RP into the corner.

Protection

Pro is good throughout and is ok with a regular NH rack

Ya. I think closer to v5 Strandman. I dont want to sound like a weenie, but I thought the start/crux of the pitch is quite hard(and good)! The climbing up the corner is good too. Kind of like a typical 5.9 cathedral layback/jam crack. I havent been on the pitches above. Nov 6, 2014

A quick story from the ffa- I had got the first pitch and TC and i went back a couple of days later for the whole route. 2 falls and then up we go, the 4th pitch is nice 10+, toe tapper fall. We were pretty stoked and on the way down I re did the old start 11C or so..we caught a ton of shit for saying 12A except when Steve Larson bought us a sixer and said Nice job Nov 6, 2014

Nice man. I'm sure respect from Larson didn't come from an inflated grade! I see him around once in a while and I think he's still climbing really well. Nov 8, 2014
