DescriptionWe Who Wander is one of the classic problems in Waterville. It follows a right to left rising traverse past an interesting schist roof.
Start standing in the pit with your right hand on a crimp and your left hand on an undercling. Climb up the face, passing a Cathedral-style face crux. Once you gain the roof, traverse left on underclings until you can achieve a tenuous rest. Work out the roof, heading left, past some slopers. Negotiate a tenuous and difficult topout onto the slab. Climb easier, but slightly highball, rock to the top.
With about 20 moves, We Who Wander feels more like a sport climb than a boulder problem, but conveniently, you are never more than a few feet off the ground. The climb flows nicely and is varied enough to keep your interest as you wander your way across the rock.
