DescriptionStart back in the cave on fantastic juggy underclings with decent feet on the wall. Power out of the cave using roof beta to a hard cross move on the small arete feature. Once gaining the seam, traverse left to a very tricky mantle topout for the grade. Thank goodness it isn't highball!
Starting further back in the cave may add a grade.
This is a super classic climb that gives us in Boston a little taste of roof climbing, and is totally uncharacteristic for Hammond Pond and a very worthy tick for being so close to the city. Any visit to the Temple Overhangs or Pusherman Wall should include a stop here.
Boston Rocks Ed. 2 gives this a classically sandbagged 5.10/V1 rating.
LocationFrom the left end of Pusherman Wall, walk roughly north for about 100 yards. The cave is very obvious, especially when foliage is thin.
Walk off the back.
