DescriptionThis is just right of Savage Place on E Wall. From the wide ledge where the route starts, go up and a little to the right. When you reach the ledge where Savage Place follows a thick flake, go up to the right of that flake, which is off-route. There's a thin flake nearby which appears to be legal. You'll have to look around carefully for holds.
Boston Rocks guide gives Savage Direct a grade of 5.9. Either I'm doing it wrong, or it's just not comparable to other 5.9s at Quincy. It's more like a Quincy 5.7+.
LocationThis route is right of Savage Place, which is the left-most route on E Wall. To get to the bottom of the route, climb up from the water's edge to a broad ledge (10+ feet wide). The route starts here, near the left corner.
ProtectionOne bolt at the top near the edge and a small sturdy tree about 10 feet back from the bolt. You can climb Savage Direct and Savage Place using the same anchor.
