Climb up a jagged boulder. Just above the boulder, the rock face is light with some rusty, horizontal streaks. There is a shallow dihedral at your left. Climb it and keep going up perhaps 15 feet. Then veer right perhaps 5-10 feet (this is where I stopped, so the rest is hearsay), then veer left to get to the ledge.
This info was garnered from Boston Rocks 2nd edition and also Rock Climbing New England guidebook. There's a 2-bolt chain anchor on the ledge, used for both Fool on a Hill and Buttress. The route continues up past a bolt, but it's reported that the climb becomes 5.10 from here and has poor protection, hence the R rating.
