Description

Start on the back arete (away from the trail) on two sidepulls in some folded, orange rock with big feet. Pull hard and throw left to the small crimp on the face. The feet are surprisingly awkward but huge. Work on sidepulls and crimps on the face and arete to the top slopers. Watch out for the branches!

Location

Walk 100-150 yards straight past the bridge from the parking lot on the way to the Fundy or Fisherman's boulder. Walk off the trail to the right into the woods about 150 yards to a dirty boulder. Not sure if it's been climbed before but me and my friend Jared are calling it the Sapling boulder, for the tree growing out of the top. Let me know! The other climb on it is Horn Over My Pockets.

Not to insult anyone but this route leaves a lot to be desired. I tried the route twice, the first time one of the jug sidepulls ripped of in my hand and on the second go one of the edges use for feet moved about a half an inch (i stepped off before it broke). also this route is VERY dirty. I did scrub some of the key holds with a wire brush but the top needs a lot of work... Maybe if it was cleaned and the crumbly holds were removed it could become a decent route... Apr 11, 2012
