I know this is a FA since I cleaned moss and lichen off the obvious starting hold. A sit start might add a grade but doesn't really add to the experience.

"I know this is a FA since I cleaned moss and lichen off the obvious starting hold."

Bear in mind this is NE. Stuff grows back very quickly if not climbed on regularly. The rock underneath is probably a more accurate indicator.

Good point. I usually put Unknown for FAs which is why I stated my reason. Lichen grows slowly too. I'll surely edit if needed. It was pretty dang dirty! Small crystals powdered off the start hold as well. I've been bouldering around Massachusetts for going on 20 years and am quite careful with this stuff.
