Location: Massachusetts : Lynn Woods : Mt. Spicket/Goliath Rock ar... : Golden Wall : No Preservatives (V5)
By: Old Timer When: 4 days ago

Comments: Pat,
On the Golden Wall, the problem Up for Parole is the prominent blunt arete roughly located about 35-40 feet right of the problem Stage Fright as the wall turns the corner. Center Stage is about 8-10 feet right of the problem Up for Parole. That problem climbs somewhat brittle crimps up a gently overhanging wall.The problem No Preservatives is a bulge with a crack/ seam about 5-6 feet left of the problem Up for Parole just before you turn the corner on the Golden Wall.
Hope this helps,

Pete

Comments: Tim,

I believe this area survived, but hopefully someone can get out there soon to confirm.

Looks like a potential double posting...let's talk about clearing it up.

Comments: Yes Tim,
The double lines represent the main set of powerlines that run the length of the Promised Land. There are two dirt roads that branch off of the powerlines which are also represented by the double lines.The high voltage symbol is for the small fenced in electrical plant. The single line represents a small path that branches off of the main powerlines. I will work on a map for Sector Two which may have been more affected by recent development.

Comments: Yes on the slightly overhanging side with the graffiti on it. Falling into the abyss is a reality so either have a good spotter or be confident that you can boulder V5.

Comments: Just when the trail turns right, head left into the woods for about 125 feet, keeping the ravine on your left and a short wall built into the hillside on your right. The original trail has probably grown in.

Comments: That is a FA to my knowledge. The other cave to the left of this one has a thin seam that starts all the way back sitting and traverses left all the way out onto the face for a couple moves and then ends due to its blankness. I will post that one up too. Probably V5 to the best of my memory.

Comments: There are actually two different approach trails. That said, we can agree that that is the front of the boulder in the picture, so I will can change my descriptions on the problems I posted so they make more sense. The V7+ problem you posted was done by Dave Sharratt years ago, and he called it V6. Not completely sure which cave route you did as two exist.

Comments: Sean,

That is Sandman. If I remember correctly, it top out above the start holds. I have changed it to V3 with the more natural exit you did.

They are indeed two different problems. Let me know if you want anything changed or switched around.

I thought it was V0 with the pedestal and V3 without it. Is that correct?

Comments: Jim,

That is right. The original version climbed as described. I also did the version you describe at a later date and agree that is easier, probably V5ish.

That's about right for the squat start on the lip with the crimp bar V4-5) and the sit under the roof is V7.

Comments: The V6 rating was the original straight-on beta. Easier beta has developed which puts the grade around V3+. Do it either way as you see fit.
