Description:

hand crack on face, OW on right between face & big block that makes this a corner (i.e. huge left-facing dihedral) If you have your jamming down, and you figure out the "secret beta" its definitely a 5.7 Maybe a 5.7+

4 out of 5 stars Tasty.

I'd heard of the dreaded sandbag on Carey Corner, but really it's just like all the other ragged 5.7s - a little stiff for the grade, nothing crazy. Good fun. Great practice OW and some jams.

3 out of 5 stars First route at Main Cliff

Nice climb. Easy but definitely felt harder than a 7. But, that's Connecticut for you.
