Northeast Overhang

5.10+, Trad,  Avg: 4 from 1 vote
FA: unknown (who put in the pitons?)
Maine > a. Western Moun… > Daggett Rock
Access Issue: Peregrine Falcons Details

Description

There were two rusty pitons (one of which got pulled out when I was cleaning the gear), indicating that old school hardmen have probably climbed it before. I found the gear a bit tricky to place, and led it with pre-placed gear. I'm tentatively calling it Northeast Overhang 5.10+. If anyone is aware of a previous free ascent please let me know. youtube.com/watch?v=LpKwMK9…

Location

This is "Crack Project 19" in the mini guide. Starting at the center of Daggett Rock, ascend the arching crack, then traverse left around the arete (crux), traverse further left on crimps and pull the roof.

Protection

small cams and medium sized nuts.

[Hide Comment] Never lead it but climbed on that crack. No pins in it, that I remember, in the late 90s. Aug 6, 2020
