Do the boulder variation with a few aliens to make it a fun 5.10. PG13 cause the aliens are tiny, and you may hit the ground.

3 out of 5 stars Double Helix

Gets my vote for favorite lead in Massachusetts. Takes great gear and the climbing is even better. Leading it is fun, doing toprope laps might be even better.

A good top rope, but a better lead. Great gear and it's just as difficult on lead as on T.R.
