I think I've topped roped it when I first statred climbing. I haven't had a chance to get back on it and flail. When I was posting climbs in the Camden area I was just going off the Townsend book.

I linked this on TR last summer, and would love to lead it. Does anyone plan to rebolt it, or would anyone be opposed to me rebolting it? Thanks.

Weaver- you bum. Who Re-bolted it! Ohhhh. I did ! Twice! :) Geeeeesh.

Melanson- I doubt that the route you were on was Clash then. It is not one of those routes that you just tr. as a new climber. Although it is only 12 a/b ,it is actually fairly technical using 1/2 pad crimper underclings and side pulls with marginal feet. The rating is one of the few in Camden that is actually solid for the grade. Also what is the possibility of maybe letting us locals do the route descriptions. let me know. Thanks for trying to update the site.
