Description

1 - Up blocky terrain to open corner to tree ledge (loose gravel and rock) - 5.9+

2- Easier climbing leads to overlap/roof, pull over on left (bolt), up open groove (crux, bolts & small cams), bolt belay near dying tree - 5.10b

3 - Up and right over Soul Survivor dike, up headwall (lighter rock), right facing corner, to another corner on left, top slab to bolt belay - 5.9

Alternative to pitch 3 would be Diss-N-Dazz (5.10c).

Location

See Ed Webster guide (Rock Climbs in the White Mtns of NH) for full cliff description. Up trail past boulders near road, up to cliff, head left, starts in broken terrain under Castaways.

Can do 3 raps with one 60m, but the first rappel is close! Solidly knot the ends on the first rap, might need to scramble or pull over to bolt belay. Using two ropes is a safer option.

Protection

Some pins and bolts plus standard rack for this area, possibly some extra small cams and a large cam (to help protect roof/overlap on pitch 2). Belays are tree (1) and bolts (2 & 3).
