Description

This is probably the best 5.12 at Chatfield, one of the best 5.12's in CT, and maybe even in New England. The route has amazing holds that change in form as you progress up the route: small crimps, angular pinches, a pocket, huge pillow slopers, to huge roof jugs. Start on the Forearm Frenzy crack and cut immediately left to a good jug hold and then start up the crimps in the overhanging wall. Steady 5.10+ crimping leads to a technical foot intensive boulder problem with a big reach left to a angular pinch. This move is followed by another boulder problem with a big reach to a pin scar pocket and a big jug. Once you have gained the overhanging sloper pillows, and a good hold, climb out the amazing, severely overhanging roof.

A New England classic.

Does anyone know how tall Hunter is? His big move to the pin scar looks better than the beta I was trying but I'm 5'10-11 Sep 26, 2014

We pulled the quickclips off on 9/9/17. Both were heavily grooved. Hoping to pick up some steel biners to replace soon. We left the mank on the shelf at the start. Sep 26, 2017
