New Speedway Boogie V3 6A  Connecticut : CT Bouldering : ... : King Boulder
This climb ascends the short beautifully sculpted arete on the NW corner of the King Boulder. Sit start under the arete. Climb on perfect holds with great moves up this arete to the jug at the peak. Mantle out right around the peak in the arete.Left this line for other to complete but it's been months so I finally decided to put it up myself... the woes of not having other boulderers in the area. Gotta put up all the lines by yourself!...[more]   Browse More Classics in Connecticut
