Description

If you face Pusherman Wall, "The Bone" is the obvious crack furthest to the right of the wall. Boston Rocks 2nd edition (p. 103) shows the route going up just to the right of the crack. I'm not sure if the intention is to use the crack for your hands and put your feet right of it, or if you are free to use the crack for your feet. We did it both ways. There are lots of good holds for hands and feet.

Location

The route is straightforward, going up the crack on the right side of Pusherman Wall. The crack wanders a little. It veers up to the right a couple of feet at the bottom, and then trends a little right and then up.

Just follow the crack up to your anchors. The crack ends shortly before the top of the climb. It's easy to top out here, or lower down if you prefer.

Note there is some paint at the bottom of the climb. It looks like it was done to cover up graffiti. The paint is not slippery and doesn't cause any problems when climbing.

Protection

Top rope. Possibly it can be led; I wouldn't try it because I don't trust puddingstone not to break. There are some large trees about 15-20 feet back from the top of this route which can be used for anchors. Bring long slings or static line.

A very fun easy highball boulder problem. Good practice for testing your nerves. Jul 14, 2014

Super fun! Definitely better as a highball, but it's great both ways. One of my favorites at HP. Jul 15, 2016
