This is probably Cape Ann's only real splitter. It is on perfect, bleached granite. If only it were longer and higher angle.... The first ascent likely belongs to a colonial era boulderer. Regardless it's a pretty cool crack to practice your hand jams. If you know how to jam, it will be really easy.

One other caveat: Snakes! In the crack! Seriously. . . on my last visit this crack was oozing with garter snakes. A particular large one had wrapped itself around the chockstone at mid-height. The base is also filled with shedded skin. As this face catches the sun and the cracks offers protection, it's a great spot for those ectothermically inclined. If you don't like your jams slithering back at you, wait until the winter months.


This is pretty obvious once you find the boulder.


Pad, spotter.
