Description [Edit]

P1 5.4 -- Start at right end of ledge before it drops into Chapel Pond (main wall), at a series of left leaning cracks. Follow these cracks for a bit until you can get onto the arete, then climb the arete. Near the top step left and continue up to fixed anchor at tree.

Location [Edit]

Start at the right end of the bottom ledge (left face).

Protection [Edit]

I used (2) tricams on the route. There are pockets that didn't seem to accept any type of gear due to being flared. Some cracks and a couple nut placements. Overall I felt the gear was mediocre and there was a bit of runout between pieces.
