Description:

High quality line with proud history: Henry Barber FA. Be sure to be quick with your gear or have iron forearms; the gives you sustained climbing on horizontal cracks followed by a technical sequence to a rest at on a narrow ledge. Then the business starts right up with again with sequency hands. The finish of the route rewards you with a steep and runout (though mostly soft and clean fall potential) topout on crimps! Truly stellar.

Descent Options:

Wonderful stone steps at either end built by hard working volunteers in CT! Thank you!

5 out of 5 stars Psyched!

Great climb! Hard onsight! But there are stances, they just take time and effort to find.

Red Point Red Point ascent by: blueeyedclimber on 2010-11-13 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars Wow! Hard lead!

If the rating is 5.10, then it's the hardest 10 I have led. If it's 11- then it's still harder than some 11's I've led. I took a 30 footer on my first attempt. My foot popped trying to clip gear during the crux. I had two pieces below that and one of them popped. The one that caught me was a little further left so I had a longer sling on it which added a couple feet to the fall. I also pulled my belayer up and I stopped about 5 feet above the ground. I impressed a local by getting right back on it and sending ;)

Top Rope Top Rope ascent by: dudemanbu on 2007-09-22 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars Fun times. Should've lead it.

Got the yellow point with relative ease.. probably should've just lead it. Sweet double knee bar at the start makes a great photo op.
