Uppity Bitch V5 6C  Massachusetts : Townsend, MA Bouldering : ... : Cliff Top Boulders
Sit start in the left nostril. Pull up, move your left hand up on the arete, and get your right hand further up the nostril. Hit the sloper left, and then with the right feet (heel hook high as you can), hit the tip of the nose with a big right. Move along ridge to get a nice foot, and press out to finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in Massachusetts

Other than across the border in NH, where is there climbing in Townsend? Been through here a bunch and never seen anything.
