DescriptionLadyslipper climbs the improbable-looking face directly above the large flake on the Upper Wonder Wall ledge. It can be thought of as a direct start to Harvest, which climbs the dihedral/flake 20 feet to the left.
P1) From the Upper Wonder Wall Ledge, climb the corner below a large flake with a tree on top (careful of loose blocks!) Belay from the tree. (5.6ish, 50 feet)
P2) Continue to the top of flake and clip a bolt. Make devious, technical moves up to the second bolt, trending right, then continue up to a flake system. Carefully fish out a gear placement or two (finger-sized cams) and climb to the top of the flakes. More technical moves take you through another 3 bolts to a stance below the main corner. Make a committing step to the left with the bolt well below your feet to reach the crack system. Jam (hand-sized cams) and stem your way up the corner to reach a 2-bolt anchor at the top of a huge block/flake - perhaps the best belay seat in North Conway? (5.9+, 75 feet)
If you really want to top out, head left and join the end of Harvest at 5.7R, but it really isn't worth it unless that sort of thing matters to you.
