Start where the base of the wall forces the trail to bend outward. A few steps right shows a vertical crack in the near horizon. Start here, ascending to the right end of a grassy/bushy ledge below a 20' arete. Either traverse the arete's right flank to the base of a vertically cracked bulge or wade through the bushes to the same place. Ascend the bulge to a bare ledge and the slabs to the base of a much taller bulge. Bear somewhat left ascending the slabs and the bulge. Standard finish is straight over the bulge to a natural belay seat at the top of the crag.(5.6) Optionaly, one may avoid topping the last bulge and traverse left about 45' to a dihedral. poor protection, for the last 30 feet, but slight exposure.(5.8)

1 out of 5 stars Twist and Crawl Wall

Boston Rocks calls this a 5.7, but I couldn't find any moves harder than 5.5 (if that). Fair practice, but kind of a crummy climb.
