Description

A steep face with holds is hard to find in the Waterville region, and The Steepness would be amazing were it not for the small boulders guarding a low start.

The idea is to start as low as possible to maximize the steep climbing. Start with your left hand on a low crimp and your right heel on a pretty obvious dish at the same level as your hand. Make a hard move with your right hand to a crisp edge, and then move your left hand to a slightly sloping hold (crux). Lock off, and follow jugs to topout. Starting higher significantly lessens the difficulty.
