Comments: This would be a four star problem if the top out wasn't a bit awkward. I think a mantel at the peak of the lip adds some grace if you can manage. If not, a scramble works too.

Comments: I might pop my head in during the rain tomorrow and see if I can get a status. Dave has a bunch of markers over there. I'll report back if I go.

Comments: Do we know if these boulders survived? Much of the area within a couple minutes of Behemoth has been destroyed.

Comments: Is the "pedestal for feet" the rock sticking out of the ground that is right below the large starting hold? It seems like folks have been using it, and it makes sense to use it since it is in the way.... We didn't really see a "pedestal" which to us meant a rock another one was leaning or sitting on. It seems like folks have been using it, and it makes sense to use it since it is in the way...

It seems like the business is on the face after the incut crimp anyway....

Comments: There is not much for holds on the overhung face except at the ends. This arete feels very hard, and a tree is kinda of in the way.

Comments: You can't tell from the photo, but this is very overhung. You can see how it overhangs on some of the other photos.

Comments: A little dance into really fun moves from the nose hold to top out. Nice, clean line.

Comments: I like the angle of that video. I suppose you would need to climb the other V7s to know! I hear Green Haze and Buttermilker are nice, Treehugger too. Another V7 was recently rediscovered at Back Door Boulders which is pretty rad too!

Comments: The first move is the crux. Starting with your right hand on the crimp (crouch start), it goes slightly easier. Moving off the sloping ledge to the blunt arete is not very smooth but not very hard.

Comments: This felt quite a bit harder than a V3 to me. The holds in the crack are sharp and at a strange angle.

Comments: I thought the topout was awkward. If not, it would get another star. Fun for sure!

Comments: Pumpy. Lots of rests if you get creative. A million variations. Fun. Worth it if you're in the hood.

Comments: It depends on your definition of good. There are chemicals combined with pressure washing or using more paint to cover it up. I recommend folks who would like to help keep our crags clean and protected join the newly formed Southeast New England Climbers Coalition. Hammond Pond is a special place and deserves more respect!

Comments: Info for Dune 5.12-5.13 R/X from Boston Rocks 2nd Edition: "FFA: John Mallery long ago, after bolting. The bolts were chopped. Mark Richey & Barry Rugo climbed it on preplaced gear in 1999, then Peter Vintoniv & Tim Kemple led it from the ground up in 2000."

Comments: There are a couple very good rests on this route. When I say "rests", I am including the sweet jams that come after to round the corner. Great problem!

Comments: Pete -these boulders sound like they are the same as some of the Bow Ridge boulders? Is Catch of the Day on the Water Tower Boulder?
Thanks,
Tim

Comments: I think this is XT17 on the Caltopo map. From the description, it sounds like it should be under the area "Steel Tower Area".

Comments: Same deal as with Crackatoa. The FA for this certainly pre-dates the early 2000s. Was it you?

Comments: When did you get the FA? A couple friends and myself climbed this crack back in 2004/5. At that time, there was evidence that it had been climbed. My understanding is that this crack has been climbed many times over.
