Thoughtful climbing


The companion to Future Shock though maybe a little harder and not quite so fine.Move up the dike to a bulge which presents an obvious crux, a pretty hard pull to a bolted belay. Nice climb


Right of Future Shock. one rope gets you down
Try to TR from the start of Future up to the crux of Tango, a bit thin- NH 5.11+ !!!!!!


bolts, some gear may be placed but is not really needed

Love this route, an ever thinning 5.10 dike gives way to a very blank crux, exiting the dike is a very hard and inobvious pull to and awkward mantle and the chains.

We did a pretty early ascent of this one BITD, after doing the crux, you kinda get a bit stable and atthe time clipped a pin. WELL the pin came out ! I wasn't carrying any pro so it was a bit sketchy runout to the tree (no bolted belay then)

The crux move is made from an almost impossibly small finger divot, can't remember which hand (sorry). A very technical climb; the lower dike moves are fascinating and not straightforward. And remember, this climb has one of those nasty New Hampshire plus symbols after the grade; if you're from out of town, you'll figure out what that means.
