Description

For a route "topo" see the photo posted to the main Outlook-Area page.
Topo may not follow exact route.

[via Barker's comments]
P1. Up the slabs with tricky gear heading towards a natural belay below the large roof on a ledge. 180 feet 5.7R
P2. Head up and left from the belay and gain the left slanting crack. Follow this through the roof on great gear up to another good ledge with a natural belay. 160 feet 5.7
P3. Scramble to the top of the dome.

Location

The line goes right up the center of the cliff through the big roof.

Protection

A standard rack up to 3" will work.

Andrew Pelton and I climbed this route ground up with out scrub brushes. We left it just as dirty as we found it. It does go through the corner, roof, proper. Not the false crack. Oct 23, 2016

On 8-5-16 Ralph and I fooled around on P2 (the "Overhang") of this route. Not 100% sure the route went up through the flaring-corner at the right end of the OH because a posting in NEClimbs.com of a photo of Chuck Woodman (on Hand-over-Hand) prompted the question "Does it [$9 Boys] go through the roof crack up and right of Chuck's head?" ..answer "Yes". However, in that photo (a portion reproduced above in photo labeled "which crack?") the formation that looks like a crack isn't really a crack, but only the shadow of the diagonaling top of a small buttress.

We later confirmed this "up close and personal" and also discovered that the flake above the "false crack" is hollow.

We cleaned and climbed the corner crack on TR and it was quite nice. about 5.7 but maybe height related. There was a LOT of lichen, so if it was climbed in 2014 maybe it wasn't cleaned (??) or maybe the climb did go through the "false crack" area and over the hollow flake??? Aug 6, 2016
