DescriptionMore than likely the nicest pure arete climb in New Hampshire. An extravaganza of desperate slapping, at the top end of the grade (12b). The bolting was a little sporty because there just weren't many clipping stances. Jerry Handren.
My friends and I set this up off the anchor for Sinister Satisfaction. You have to belay from above but it's worth the effort, it is kind of a gem.
Climb 20 feet of S.S. then move left out a small crack gaining the face and arete. From here intricate climbing leads to a laughably small roof that will take some thought. Up the rest of the arete the beta is more straight forward. Strenuous, sustained, pinching, and laybacking with smearing feet to the top!
