Description 

This is a small granite block up at the Stone Tower. The boulder is not that tall, but it has some good moderate lines. A good place to warm up for some of the harder stuff in the area. Gets a lot of sun and would be a great, quick, winter hit.

Getting There 

Follow the same directions as for The Stone Tower Boulder. When you arrive at the stone tower, walk behind it you will see a trail in front of you slighlty to the left. The Egg is less than a minute down this trail.

The short, blunt arete on the side of The Egg that faces down the hill can be very enjoyable; however, it can also feel horrible without good friction. Start sitting with right on really low crimp that is actually close to the ground and left on a slopey crimp higher up on the face. Make a move up to the arete with the right. Bump right hand up a couple times and make a crux move with the left to gain the easy upper arete. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Massachusetts

Pete, I remember the grades we agreed on for all of the lines on this boulder, but I do not remember the names. Did you have the names written down for this one? If so, please tell.
