Route is between climb #15 and #16 in the Fasulo "Rock Climbing in CT" guide.

Once at the overlap mid way between "Stone Age[#15]" and "A Prime Climb[#16]", go directly over using the very thin crack. About 5.8


TR or small stuff

I've been struggling on this one. Seems harder than 5.8
Must be missing something...

Edit 7/17/17: OK, pulled this roof yesterday on TR. Probably 5.8+. Def not 5.9. Pretty small crimpers above the OH. And NO gear.

It's a bit thin and continuous face, maybe harder than 5.8...who knows? We were just fooling around TR-ing whatever looked interesting. It might be a 'reach thing' too, I'm 6ft "even" and do sort of recall a key right-hand-hold up high.

If you look at "Kurt's" photo of Going Vertical, you can see the crack that "15a" uses to climb over the OH, it's the crack just to the right of the yellow dashed line. Above the OH the crack is very thin.
