Description:

POTHOLES is a high-profile (due to the number of "Gapers" that stop and stare) climb that follows the obvious series of potholes up the Red Spire's Northeast side. Neat climb that keeps you off-balance from the first pothole to the top. Rappel from the summit anchors. NEW bolt added 7/ 09/04 New bolt added (1st bolt) on 9/10/2007

5 out of 5 stars A great climb with my friend Mary Alice

This looks quite scary, with a lot of exposure, but it climbs well, and has beautiful views.

5 out of 5 stars A great climb that looks amazing!

Not as hard as it looks. Very exposed. Lots of people will watch you.

2 out of 5 stars lame climb.

the pitons are sketch, the holds are greasy as heck. awkward hold for me, but an easy climb. the face to the left w/horizontal crack is better climb.
