An obvious line on the right face of the Main Wall with pins about 30ft up. A runout frictiony start leads to some fundamental climbing. Nice jams up high keep you rested.

3 out of 5 stars Thin Line

Almost always wet! After two years, I finally found it dry enough to lead. Good climb with tricky gear. Maybe a full selection of tricams might help...

4 out of 5 stars pumpy

Fell the first couple of tries but finally topped out clean. The New England book gives it a 5.9 rating and Boston Rocks gives it a 5.8. Seemed closer to a .9 to me. Anyone know anything about this?

3 out of 5 stars Fun!

Pumpy, but with good gear. Well worth doing. Almost like an onsight, since I can't remember when I did it before, though I think I TRed something on this face. It may or may not have been Thin Line (that's my story and I'm sticking to it!) ;)
