Description 

Stand start using a smooth incut crimp in a small crack system for either hand and then a hand slightly higher in a pocket like feature within the same crack. Crimp hard and make a move out left to a large flake or a bigger move straight up to bad crimps in the crack. From here bust out a big hard move to good holds or use very poor intermediates. Hang on and hit the lip and top out.
A sit start has yet to be done, although it is possible at around v9.

Location 

Located about 50 yards before reaching Mammoth Rock. You will see a large blank face when looking uphill from the trail to Mammoth Rock, this problem starts around the corner and on the next boulder with the next blank face.

Protection 

Crash-pad and a Spotter. This line actually has a flat rock at its base making it a great landing.

Where does this line start? Standing or sitting and on what holds?

I don't remember completely Matt but I might have a picture that I could post up. The start is quite hard, you use a horizontal crimp and a bad pinch out right to start, then it follows crimps in the seam out to the left and then heads up the face. I might be heading out there tomorrow so if I do I'll get some good pictures.

If you want me to show you around this area I'd be happy too.

Yeah it has been too long since I've been on the route. Can't really remember any of the moves, but they were all difficult. Nothing was easy about this problem.

Thanks guys, I live up north but my dad lives in Goffstown, so i am always looking for a close spot to his house. Jake if I head it out there I would be stoked for a tour.

Yeah Matt for sure, just let me know when, there's a lot of cool stuff here.

Also added a pic of this climb, it's not great but it should do for now

I added a couple new photos showing the correct starting holds and the line of travel. I was wrong about starting on the bad pinch out right.

I also took down the old photo because it was wrong.

Got on this thing today. It is extremely difficult and I made pretty much no progress on it.
