Comments: This problem deserves two stars. It's really short (certainly under 10 feet) but fierce and a good examination at the grade. It's perfect for a solo circuit.

Comments: Who knows who first climbed this thing, but I get the feeling this crack has been visited by locals for many a year.

Comments: Nice, Mark!

Looks better than the Northend or the Barber Wall.

Comments: Handren's book lists this as 11c. The second pitch is listed as 11a (so the first pitch is the crux). The pitch descriptions-- meager as they are-- resemble each other in both MP and Handren's guide.

Anyone have insights on the discrepancy? I have never been on it.

Jim

P.S. This is also a two starred route in Handren. Seems like a worthwhile route to check out.

Comments: Is the crux of this protected by the pink tricam [gulp!]?

Comments: I upped the grade on this a little, because it getting cleaner and is remaining pretty hard. Unlike Slip Van Winkle, which has pretty defined crux, this remains tricky throughout. Still needs some cleaning though.

Comments: This one of the better V4s around. Not a lot of subtlety here, just pretty burly, and definitely no gimme at the grade.

Comments: Quote: "Could you get away with leading this on a set of nuts and Camalots from sizes 0.3 to 2?"

Absolutely. It was one of my first leads, I am not especially brave, and I only had a few cams.

Get on it!

Comments: Please Note: Public access has been lost to this area.

The pull-off on Concord St. mentioned in the area description above is now clearly posted with a "No Trespassing" sign and should be avoided. Though the cliff itself is part of the the Great Ledges property of the Essex County Greenbelt Association, it is completely encircled by private land and the access granted to the ECGA does not extend to the public.

A real shame.

Comments: Really nice block. It sits alone on the top of a hill that sits at the borders the Concord Street, Mt. Jacob, and the Calvary Areas.

The face just left of Full Moon (behind the tree) has a cool VFH crimping project up the tallest part of the boulder on incredible rock.

Comments: I think this is near Swamp 4 boulders. There is one really nice looking boulder 100 or so feet from here and a few more boulders and walls worth exploring on this side of the pond.

Location: MA : Cape Ann : Down Under : Right Arete Project (V7)
By: jim.dangle When: Nov 3, 2013

view comment >>
Comments: Pete and I had a go at this recently. Pete climbed the arete at V5 (Charging Rhino) using the pistol grip hold that is just on the right face. The still unclimbed project uses the arete and left face and is harder and very height dependent. If you are 6' 4", might be pretty straightforward.

Fun problem. If anyone does it, let me know.

Comments: I bumped this up a star and downgraded it a little now that it is gotten cleaner. Short but really sweet friction climbing. One of my favorite pure friction routes in the Redrock area. Unlike many other slab climbs in the area, there are really very few actual features. Just you, your shoes, and the very blank rock.

Comments: Noticed some chalk on this that may be recent. Like anything in Redrock area it was likely bouldered long ago, but if it anyone wants the FA or has a better name let me know.

Comments: I have a huge bias for this sort of climbing, but this is one of the best problems I have done in the area.
