Description:

Between 'Conneticut Cracks' and 'Old Town', the really wide thing. This is an offwidth; leg jams, arm jams, laybacks. great climb!!

Finish on Old Town ledge and that routes 2B anchor.

4 out of 5 stars Strenuous

The first pitch is somewhat akward. You have to use a variety of techniques. Although it is a fun climb it definately works you a little bit. The second pitch has a sweet dihedral on it.

Now this is a climb I had to work for. You can't learn to climb this one in the gym. I enjoyed it.
