Start on jug rail around the side to the left from Dirty crack, and to the left of arthritis,then reach up to a juggy ledge. Move you're feet up and feel around to the right, right below the pine tree for a crimp and bump to jugs at the top.
We cleaned several jugs we found under moss to the left of the tree...tree is no longer necessary to top out.


around the left side of the dirty crack boulder, the second problem around the left just past Artritis.


one pad and a spotter

This is an awesome boulder problem. It would be a high quality v1 anywhere! Jul 22, 2015

Tried like ten times today...can't get to the jug. tried going to the intermediate crimps out to the right but that didn't work either. I either need to bump my feet up to the start hold and deadpoint or dyno from lower feet! Aug 24, 2011
The move off the rail feels committing, but the jug is incredible, Once it's dry, you should definitely try it. Aug 24, 2011

Another one I have to get...I always back off at the last rail just before the jugs!!! Aug 24, 2011
Climbed this again today. This will be one of the best problems at its grade in VT once the moss at the topout is cleaned so that the upper holds have a chance to dry out. Aug 23, 2011
Cool. I hope to find some time next week to get down there again. Jul 18, 2011

Go for it...have fun...variations are welcome, expected and part of the fun of climbing! Jul 15, 2011
It's a shame that this doesn't go up the mossy groove to the left of the tree, so that you could avoid the tree altogether. Jul 15, 2011
