Description

This is the "weird, steep face climb" to the right of Outersite. This route sees very little traffic and goes up the steep face above the flake on the first pitch of Outersite. Pumpy and awkward face moves lead up the face with dubious pro to a ledge below an overhang. Finish either via the large roof onto an awkward ramp or straight up the center on a bouldery sequence of steep moves.

This is a good route and is seldom done, possibly because of a very vague description in the Boston Rocks guidebook. It feels harder than the grade would suggest.

Location

It is roughly straight up the center of the steep wall above the first belay of Outersite. This is clearly distinguished from the easier moves of the 2nd pitch of Outersite.

All route descriptions I have read are unclear as to whether this was originally done as a second pitch of Intertwine via a leftward traverse from the anchor or an optional 2nd pitch of Outersite. It is common practice is to start the route via the first section of Outersite.

Protection

The gear is dubious and spaced out amidst ledges, so it doesn't strike me as a safe lead. Two decent pines at the top make for an easy TR setup.
