Description

This is a stellar project that I discovered this summer. It's hard for me to believe this line hasn't been done yet, since it's located about 100 yards from the Round Pond parking, but it appears that is the case.

Start standing with your left hand on a sloping quartz edge at around 6 feet and your right hand on any one of a choice of smallish crimps at similar height. (There is one hold that seems like the most likely choice.) Pull on with some difficulty and make a big move to an angled edge with the left hand. Reset the feet and then throw again to the lip with the right hand. Hold the swing and pull a few remaining moves to top out.

This is one of the best undone lines I have seen at Pawtuckaway. And it's so easy to access. Someone needs to do it! It's kind of like a smaller version of 'Confident Man', with similar athletic moves between decent holds.

Not sure what the grade will be ultimately. Feels at least v10. Perhaps a bit harder. But I could be completely wrong. :)

This is an open project. So, send it and let us know all about it! I'll be glad to update the post. And take some pics or video because it would be cool to see.

Location

This climb is located immediately to the right of 'A River Runs Through It'. From the parking at Round Pond, cross the stream and turn left, heading past 'The Sneaker Problem', etc. The overhanging face will be visible shortly thereafter, right beside the stream.

Protection

A few pads and spotters will be useful. The landing is fairly clean, but it slopes a little to the left, towards the stream.

Tried this thing a few times. The RH crimps are continuously deteriorating and seriously marginal. Awkward (and heinous) first move. Not the best line IMO. Jan 4, 2016

Nice work Troy. The pogo move on the start looks cool. Good luck! Nov 24, 2015

all though I didn't get the send here is some footage of me working on this route earlier this month. youtube.com/watch?v=J5bAjqa… Nov 24, 2015

Dave Wetmore and Josh Larson had been trying it and I think they were experimenting with using the left arete for the left hand, but I don't remember their exact beta. Josh told me they thought it was pretty hard.

I agree that it's pretty cool and I'm surprised it hasn't received more attention. Nov 15, 2015

Finally tried this line out today and this thing is crazy. All the moves seem really cool. I managed to get the top out figured out but the first move is insanely hard. I got my feet off the ground but that's about it. Nov 14, 2015

Someone needs to get this before Bryce does or it'll get labeled v5 :) Nov 15, 2013
