Comments: These climbs are in the shade and probably little traffic...which allows the vegetation to regrow. We spent a good bit of time cleaning out this crack, leaving a decent pile of dirt and debris at the base.

Comments: FWIW, I recommend belaying a pitch of climbing up to the base of this route. The approach bit is slippery and exposed. A fall here would suck.

Comments: Schneid, a MP.com user suggested a reorganization. These various crags were scattered and less organized. So, it seemed to make sense to do as this user suggested. Certainly there are plenty of ways to organize crags. This one just seemed an improvement compared to what we had previously.

Comments: From the news: they are going to dredge Boulder Creek from Boulder Falls all the way downstream. It will close the creek to playing/being in the water with a reported $1000 fine for violators.

Comments: We swapped out the sun-bleached white (formerly chartreuse) sling with a bit of cord through bolt smashlinks and a quicklink. The rope pulls easily now. You can also now clip a biner into both SMC hangers.

Comments: There is a nice variation that starts in the chimney of Natural Fact, moves into the dihedral of the pillar to its left, and continues on the face bit of This Ain't Naturita, Pilgrim. Small cams, perhaps even double yellow Aliens/TCUs and a longer sling are useful.

Comments: JD1984, there can be one. All it takes is someone to do so. I never climbed ice in MA. If you are inspired, have at it!

Edit: if you want, I can start it for you...like we did in Colorado's section.

Comments: Geoff, you're right, it's more than 150 yards. It's probably 10 minutes west if you basically contour at approximately the same level as the west (left) side of the crag. Maybe it's 500-600 yards? From what I can recall, you can get a glimpse of the top of it pretty shortly after contouring west. Note, the Upper Wall is a bit higher up the hill, probably another 10 minutes and maybe another 400 yards uphill.

Comments: Tristan, they used them as ascenders in situations where we didn't plan on ascending using them. They were slings for leading. They ascended or tried to ascend vertical/overhanging terrain, they didn't hold, they slid down the rope using them...much to their chagrin.
