Comments: It was still not low enough, close, but not yet. Might need to wait until next year....

Comments: The water needs to be a couple feet lower for the start to the crack.

Comments: These boulders are only climbable during very low water. Today (1/14/18) the water is low but not low enough. The white horizontal line on the boulder is about where the water was today. For reference, the water was just at the base of the concrete tower near the parking lot.

Comments: Sent with the sit start today. Adds a ton of value. Coming around the corner into the lip becomes a first crux.

Comments: It’s a stout 5.8 and pretty sustained as well. It’s smart to zipper up the lower section to minimize groundfall potential. Good work!

Comments: If the plantings are trampled due to enjoyment of the rock, then they were put in the incorrect spot.

Comments: A better question is: are we doing anything illegal? No, we are not. It’s a public course in Lynn Woods closed to golfing in the winter.

Comments: I thought it would be low enough today. It was not for Lightning. Needed about 2 more feet.

Comments: This thing is really fun! Powerful fuel depleting moves into a sick toe hook into big, fun movement.

Comments: The full sit, Ethan. Get it. That first big move you mention gives a unique momentum that is worth doing for sure. Great problem.

Comments: Does this start with right hand on sidepull, left on undercling, and butt up against a rock on the ground?

Comments: Stiff V3! Super nice movement on this. Style goes a long way on this!
Coz, that loose base rock didn’t bother us. I don’t see why you couldn’t cram another rock under it to stabilize?

Comments: The tiny tree in the left crack near the top? I brushed out that hold, and nobody used it. I saw 3 sends the day I was there, and we all had either moved to the right crack well before that pod or had never even touched the left crack to begin with. I stayed in the right crack after trying a couple times using the left crack (like in the photos). If you stay in the right crack, you can cross over, get a good crimp in the crack, lock off on it, and reach up to the "thank god" pocket/crack at the ... more >>

Comments: This small cluster of boulders has high potential for good to classic problems. They are tucked away in a hillside near a wetland close to Johnson's Quarry but on the Natti Woods side. See the Caltopo map for Cape Ann.

Comments: Pete, can you confirm the photos I posted are this boulder? It is near the end of the path along Rum Rock Lake and is about 50 meters into the woods. It is also quite the "anomaly" in the area.

Comments: I think the man who lives here sometimes has his camp set up at Gravity Boulder. There was a chair, mattress, and some supplies in the vicinity! It all looked like it was in good shape.
