The problem in it's semi-dry glory. Start on the l...

Description 

The obvious line on the far left end of the steep wall. Start on a good right hand crimp, and a decent chip for the left. Move up through some tension based holds, up to the big move to the hold over the lip. It’s not actually over. Pull your way onto the slab, then keep it together for a few easy moves, and a somewhat hairy and high topout. Walk/scramble/shrub climb right to the ledge and down climb Down Not Out (V0-) or move directly up to top out and walk around the cliff line.

Location 

The most overhanging section of the Winter Wall. Start low on crimps.

Protection 

Pads and spotters

This Boulder problem, and a few others in and around there, were done by John Branscombe some time ago. As for time frame I'll have to ask him.

I'll get some footage up too just to make sure that we're all on the same page, thanks Chris.

I seem to remember a video a while back (4 or 5 years ago maybe) of someone climbing the middle of that overhang, it looks very familiar but I can't seem to find the video anywhere...

Is it this? Not quite 4-5 years ago. I'm not super invested in who got the FA, I'd just find it hard to believe that much was done on that wall based on the amount of loose holds we pulled off of it, and not to mention (mentioning anyway) the 200+ pounds of organic material I chopped off the topout. This is new england, I wouldn't be surprised if it had been done before.

Yup, that's it. I'm old and my memory sucks so my bad. Looks like some fun problems there!

It's the same person, he just finally sent it! I'd still like to hear from John though.

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Talked to John, this weekend, and he stated he did this problem back in the late 90's/early 2000's. If you look around the lip of the cliff, and move a few rocks, you'll find a bolt or two out there. He primarily was looking for V4 and above boulder problems.

That's really cool, thanks for the history!

Cool to hear Chris, I'm kinda surprised I never saw bolts. I was hanging a long static line from a good tree setback from the edge. If he has an alternate name or comments on the grade, let me know
