Climb through the crack to the right of the blocky Quick Descent route. Trend right toward the tallest part of the cliff. The upper slab section has thinner moves, but there is no noticeable crux - just easy climbing. Finish at the main/upper ledge and descend through the Descent Chimney.You can also extend the climb by scrambling up the blocky face that sits atop the main ledge. Enjoy the view of Boston!...[more]   Browse More Classics in Massachusetts
