Description 

This is the impressive right-diagonalling finger crack that splits the face between two arete problems. Good locks once you find them, though the crack is often wet.

"Graham O" feel that "This classic problem is a test of crack climbing and mental fortitude. Though obvious, aesthetic, and appealing, few decide to attempt it after seeing the landing. Those who decide to try it will be rewarded, as it is very unique for Pway and gives a New England climber a taste of the Buttermilks."

Location 

The boulder directly to the right if you're standing at Storm Pockets. The top of the boulder is a bit of a jungle. Downclimb with the help of a tree.

Protection 

Multiple pads and at least one capable spotter.

The top of this is soooooo scary.I have taken big falls from the top due to fear and no chalk. If you are going to try warrior have AT LEAST two spotters and three pads. The top could be cleaned.

Yeah, it's plenty high and there's no shortage of lichen up there.
The topout, at least as I have executed it, has a breakthrough move, beyond which you are basically done with the climbing, but there is still some delicate stepping required before the climber will consider himself 'standing on top,' which is to say 'done.'

My brother and I worked on this route last week, we had 4 crash pads and he cleaned the top crack out before getting on it. he followed the initial crack up and to the right but wasn't able to finish the route due to lichen, moss and pine needle on the top out as well as some dust and dirt inside the crack. He ended up coming off the route and falling a good 7 feet or so to the crash-pads below. Very scary route.
Afterwards Troy cleaned out the left crack and top out and got his revenge and finished the Warrior off that way, still a very sketchy top out, and the climber isn't safe until you are able to snag the tree up top. Not sure if the Beta is staying on the initial crack or doing the left crack top out.

Left crack for sure, I tried the right crack and it was dirtier, mossier, greasier, harder, scarier, and less fun than the vertical crack variation. If you do the vertical crack, it's my vote for the best v3 at Pway.
