This excellent climb should be on everyone's tick list. Good edges and crimps lead to an exhilarating (but safe) top out high off the deck.

Choose from an assortment of holds at 6 feet. Pull off the ground and puzzle a way up to the jugs/large edges at 2/3 height. Take a breath, shake out and continue upwards to finish on good holds.


Located on the Walrus boulder, which is the second boulder in the Devil's Den area.


Two or three pads. More if this is at your limit. The landing is flat for the most part, but this problem is quite tall.

I haven't sent from the stand or sit, but I've always started from a sit? Kinda awkward, but offers more climbing on flat edges, probably doesn't change the grade. Oct 25, 2013

I just posted it as a stand as that's how I've seen it described in several places. I agree with you that the sit doesn't add much difficulty, maybe half a grade at most. So, really it's mostly just personal preference as to whether you start standing or sitting. Oct 25, 2013

'Feeling For The Heavens' is the name given to it in Bryce's book. So, I included both. It's a much better and more descriptive name for the climb, in my opinion. Nov 6, 2015

Feeling for the Heavens was the original name - where Slow and Pooky came from is an unanswered question. Dec 18, 2015

Awesome climb! Fun, sustained moves up an incredibly aesthetic headwall/overhang on one of the proudest boulders in Pway! Perfect rock, too! 3+ pads and a spotter definitely recommended, though. It's pretty tall, the landing is half covered by a rock, and about 10 feet behind the climb is a steep drop. Jul 9, 2016

One of my favorite V4's at Pawtuckaway. The flat edges and jug like features are so cool on this thing and its just tall enough to keep you on the edge of your feet. Great climb! youtube.com/watch?v=hgErwY-… May 20, 2017
