Description

We 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.

I'd have to agree with the NE classic comment. Best v7 I've been on so far! Every move is interesting and fun. The mantle at the end is a heart breaker but so gratifying one you figure it out. May 2, 2016
This looks exceptional. Thanks for finding and cleaning it, and more thanks for sharing. Jul 10, 2014

This climb is so amazing! Anyone who wants to do classics in NH or New England should do this one for sure. It's Long and powerful at the end. May 2, 2014

This problem should be a NH classic, if not a New England classic. Beautiful movement capped by a stopper mantle move that has tossed many strong climbers. A visually striking line that flows perfectly and should be climbed by all. Dec 3, 2013
