Sit on the shelf at the base of The Estate. Sink your hands into the rightmost crack, and plug in a left heel or toe hook. Follow the crack up and to the right, then make a big move up to a crimp rail. There is a large, slopey pocket above the crack system which can be used as a solid foothold for the otherwise sketchy topout.


Multiple pads, and at least one spotter moving them. The landing is very uneven, making it difficult to protect with a single pad.

The FA for anything on this boulder was before any of us were born. One very important thing to remember about Hammond Pond is that every scrap of rock has been climbed. Over and over again. It is one of the most famous and most popular bouldering areas in an urban area for the last 30-40 years. Before the internet, an ascent of an easy face may ave gotten a quick jot in a notebook somewhere. I personally know of two groups of climbers that scoured that place. One in the early 2000's and one in 2007/8. If you are looking for FA's come to Lynn Woods and I'll show you some lines you can clean.
