|Fun lead that protects well. Pulling over the roof is the crux.... Just comit and go.|

This is a great climb. I was pleasantly surprised.
A good lead for the 5.7 leader. Give a a try - it's well-protected and super fun. Lots of holds/feet, but it's a little intimidating and tricky.
Well-rated at 5.7.

|According to Sam Streibert's 1975 guide, the FA for this route was by John Post and others in 1952. It was well-traveled by the Lowell Tech Outing club during the late 1960s, when we called it the "Black Route" (see the comment under Green Route).|
