Boardwalk 5.3 3+ 10 III 9 VD 3a  MA : Quincy Quarries : G Wall (aka H Face)
It's a nice fun climb with lots of good holds for feet and hands. There's no noticeable crux. Be careful belaying and tossing your rope down from the top; there's a giant pool of water which comes almost right up to the bottom of this wall. You may want to bring a tarp if you're concerned about your rope getting soggy....[more]   Browse More Classics in MA
