Climb the right-angling crack to the right of Bolts and Hoes. It is harder and dirtier than it looks. It is fun if you like that sort of thing. We managed to get to the bolts for the sport routes on the left, not very fun. If anyone ever climbs this again, you might think about setting a belay at the tree and walking off.


This is the crack to the right of Bolts and Hoes.

Nice, I started up this when we were setting up the sport routes, but it was so dirty I downclimbed it. I never had time to get back and clean it and add an anchor (I live in NH). Glad to see someone did it. It looked pretty cool....

I climbed this and in 2012 after John put up the sport routes. I'm surprised anyone else got on this. I thought it was seriously dirty and felt more like 10-.

This is not horribly dirty at this point, but near the top there is much loose, suspect, rock. It is good to anchor to the tree but a party can descend from the "Bolts and Hoes" anchor fairly easily. The walkoff is steep in places.

I did it, it wasn't the dirtiest, but I didn't have enough large cams to protect the top and got VERY scared.

I recommend a #4 cam and maybe even a #5 cam as the crack gets really wide in the back. (I placed a #3, but it could easily walk). So yes, bring at least 1 #4 cam, and I'm thinking you could even find room for a 5! You will not regret it!

Otherwise, the climb was decent. The hardest part is the beginning, but my lack of gear caused a very very heady lead, so I won't give this stars until I can try again with a clear head.
