The Jitterbug (aka Try Again)

V0+, Boulder, 12 ft,  Avg: 2.1 from 39 votes
FA: unknown
New Hampshire > Pawtuckaway > Round Pond

Description

A classic, albeit short, little climb that is more about technique than pulling power. Stand start in the middle of the face with a good left hand crimp and a right hand undercling pinch. Work those feet to stand up into the undercling and reach up into better holds. Finish up to the top on easier terrain.

Location

At the top of the hill opposite the Balancing Boulder on Jelly Rock. This climbs the center of the low angle face between the large crack and the tree. Downclimb through the chimney on the other side of the boulder.
