Description Suggest change

A great, pumpy line with good movement, some tricky gear placements, and mostly good rock.  

Start on the left side of the face under a high bolt (stick clip).  Climb up through some blocky terrain, then navigate the steep ramp-like dihedral to the base of the right-rising crack.  Follow the crack (crux) through some strenuous gear placements until you are beneath a hollow left-facing flake a few feet left of the arete. Break out of the crack and climb the flake, then continue up the face past another bolt to a bolted anchor at a small ledge.

Location Suggest change

If walking, follow the Root Row Trail to Pulpit Rock State Forest.  Continue down the gully past the gully climbs to reach the lake.  Follow the cliff band as it turns and you will come to a beautiful wave of rock, reminiscent of some of the crags at Rumney in shape and color.  Approach time: 30-40 min.  If canoeing, head towards the far left end of the lake, beach the canoe at the talus, and walk right up to the cliff.  Approach time: 5-10 min.

Protection Suggest change

Two bolts, a few cams up to BD 0.75 or 1, with doubles in 0.2-0.3, and a couple small to medium nuts.  Extending some pieces may reduce rope drag. Bolted anchor.
