Follow the crack out left then straight up on to t...


Awesome crack and face climbing on a beautiful (albeit, crumbly) left arching crack. Just standing below this wall is awesome. One of the best trad lines in southern NH.


At the extreme right side of Devils Den, you'll find the most beautiful line in all of Pawtuckaway, Sympathy for the Devil, start here. You can't miss it, it's the tallest, proudest and most continuous section of rock in the area. For the Exorcist just follow the main crack arching left and then straight up. You can climb directly up the arete up top following the bolts at 5.12ish, but by reaching out left for a few moves you can keep it at 5.11. You can also start more directly by following a few ancient fixed pieces. Very good!


A full rack is needed, with a selection of cams for the start and then a handful of nuts for where the crack straightens out. Then a few draws for the arete up top.
