Description

walk down the hill from the over hanging large boulder and the one in the corner and walk down a path to the back side of a seemingly small boulder... the otherside holds a 15 foot highball boulder with a tree about two feet from the right side... the boulder is relitivly clean and slabby right off the bat you should see a two finger pocket pretty close to the center work your way from the left side with a terrible crimp with a thumb catch and a opposing side pull up to a left hand juggy pocket from there move your right hand up to another side pull move your right hand into the centered two finger pocket then switch hands to your left hand in that same pocket... move right using shisty foot holds to a dyno righ to anothe sidepull crimp... get you right foot up and the crux and the sketchy ascent begin as you move your left hand up to a slopy ledge up high and use arete up with your right until you can dyno to the nice finish ...

Location

walk down the hill from the over hanging large boulder and the one in the corner and walk down a path to the back side of a seemingly small boulder... the otherside holds a 15 foot highball boulder with a tree about two feet from the right side... the boulder is relitivly clean and slabby right off the bat you should see a two finger pocket pretty close to the center

Protection

bring a pad or two... i went by myself ... and had one set in the middle of the boulder for the traverse moves right... then if i fell i would grab the tree behind me on the right side.... but two would be nice...

Amazing face with great holds, more or less right up the center of the face. Felt like a solid V3/V4. Nov 4, 2017

This particular boulder gives me a bit of trouble. I've sent a route that goes left of the route here. Heading left seems a tad easier maybe and there's no tree. You finish up on the arete. Heading right can be heady because that tree looms behind you. Dec 15, 2016

iwas working some newer techy moves with a sit start from the right traverse left and slapping some side pulls then match at the sloper on the top right and topped out off of that i do feel it was longer and a sketchy ending but i did lower it to a 3 i will try and post some newer beta photos of my route Sep 19, 2016
awesome man glad you're dusting off the shoes! its a good place to go when you don't have too much time but still want to get out. Sep 14, 2016
hi I am new to this site and I did a fair amount of climbing when I was a lot younger in the early 90's. I'm 39 now and thinking about dusting off the old shoes and getting back into it. I used to boulder there all the time because I live in Brookline. the hill its self is named rock Raymond or at least that's what the locals call it. my cousin and I played around on that same climb or problem as its called and we called it "Looney tunes" I think it was before the big bouldering craze when bouldering was just warming up or practicing for bigger climbs I don't believe the v system of grading existed yet or if it did we didn't know about it. but its good to see people out there I cant wait to head up and see what I remember. a friend of mine live across the highway from there and his father was a climber from way back Paul Ward. he got me into climbing and brought me up to cathedral a few times. good guy real old school Aug 6, 2016
Hey man I met you the other day here! Awesome to see new climbs getting posted. There are plenty of ways to start this climb (all versions being equally awesome) they all lead to the same finish. When I first did this probably a year ago I only scrubbed just enough to see the holds, it definitely has been cleaned more thoroughly since then. But it felt about v2 for me, not sure when you climbed it but to my knowledge Miles Galloway got the FA. I talked to somebody who climbed this area in the 90s and there was no official ascent of this. May 24, 2016
