If I were from Boston, I'd describe this route as being wicked awesome. Since I'm not, I'll just say that it's a fantastic, sustained pitch on some great stone.

Follow good, but spaced, crimps and pockets up the beautiful pink and purple streak. I felt that the crux proper was going from bolt 3-4 and involved a difficult cross through move from a good side pull to a sinker 2-finger pocket. However, I felt there was no real 'easy' move on the entire route.

Rest as well as you can between bolts 5-6, because there's a stout boulder problem to reach the chains over the bulge, which will result in some BIG air if you blow it.


Starts just to the (climbers) right of a small tree, in-between "Right About Now" and "Paladin".
