Description:

The route is located at the highest part of the wall and has three short sections divided by two big ledges. The first section follows the prominent overhanging crack at the highest part of the wall. The second part continues straight up to the second and last ledge. The final section is the shortest and mainly consists of a long move (read: dyno) up to a small shelf. This move is hard to protect, and the Boston Rocks book indicates that the FFA was done by toproping this section. The last section can be made easy by going diagonally up to the left. FA: Sprax at A2, FFA: Zeb Engberg. Rated 5.12 R in Boston Rocks, 2nd edition. Actually on the first lead Zeb did not TR the final section but did take the easier left hand finish.

4 out of 5 stars TR summer project

My first 5.12 sent anywhere, anyhow. It took 3 trips to the quarries and many tries but it was worth it. A great climb, especially the first section with the crack.

The third section is tough, I took the far right option as the dyno is a ball breaker. I tried it again next time and still couldn't do it.

3 out of 5 stars Trad- placed all gear on lead

I had top roped this many times before, so it seemed about time. I went straight up center at the final tier, protected by small gear out right

5 out of 5 stars Thank You Scott

Lower crack section rules. Way easier if you choose to use the pile of cheater stones that is usually there. Lower Crux is getting to the crack without using any cheater stones. Yes, the spray paint make it harder to use those crimps. Deal with it. On the top section, I go right, then traverse left to the anchors. To keep it at .12, you must climb the final section straight up (I can't). Otherwise I would say 5.11a. FUN !

3 out of 5 stars nice

Did it cleanly on toprope. I was debating on leading it, but both the middle and top sections are a little scary. Chickened out. Someday.
