Start on a very thin arete with a pinch on the left hand. Move right heel around right and settle in a shallow divot. Rock onto heel reach high with right hand to a very bad, sloping, sidepull-type hold. Move left up high and bump right up to a better side pull and then pull on top. The crux is moving the right heel over as it is hard to stay on.


From the park HQ on Cedar Street, find the Chipmunk Trail on the the right side of parking lot. Follow the trail till you find a boulder right on the trail. Bushwhack left into the woods following a slight rise till you see the boulder.


Two pads and spotters.

Is this the "Arete Rock" that is mentioned on p. 111 of Boston Rocks 2nd Ed. ? I couldn't find it using the book's directions, but I went and checked out the rock using the OP's directions and it seemed to fit what the book was trying to say.

Anyways, this is a great looking problem with excellent quality granite, looking forward to getting on it at some point.

Question to the OP, does this problem top out to the right of the arete (climber's right) or do you go left?

There is chalk on the right side of this problem. I was trying a line up that. I believe the actual problem did top out just right of the arete. I'll have to tell Josh to chime in.

You're right. Josh PM'd me and said that this problem tops out to the right. You can see the sidepull that has been excavated from the moss.
