Jeremy heading in to the meat of the route


An amazing and under utilized climb that feels like nothing else I have done at Pawtuckaway. The climbing and the feature remind me more of Rumney than typical Pway.

After a really fun initial "boulder problem" to a no hands rest ledge the route follows a perfect overhanging arête to the top. With one hand on the corner and the other bumping between flakes and edges, compress your way up the steep wall until the end. The Top out isn't the crux move but the route is surely not over until you are standing on top.


just to the left of the sweet corner/crack, Cornered 5.7.


Use gear and or trees to pace your TR on the upper slab or extend your master point down over the lip to reduce rope drag.
