Comments: Dan,

That's about right for the squat start.

Comments: The V6 rating was the original straight-on beta. Easier beta has developed which puts the grade around V3+. Do it either way as you see fit.

Comments: This felt like hard V6, but I am pretty short at five feet five and can't reach the flake so I had to use a tiny crimp first.

Comments: Tony,

There are about 20-25 open projects in the Lynn Woods Area. All are in the double digit range. Send me a PM if you want to see some.

Comments: Actually Jim,

This is Shoreline Boulder #1, but I like your name and descriptions and photos better, so let's keep it as you have it and I will remove the Shoreline Boulder #1 listing.

Comments: Yes,
It is part of the Town Forest. I did look around and while there was certainly other rock there it was easy V0 or V1 type problems. This group of blocks was the best.

Comments: I just got a $15 ticket from the cops yesterday for parking in one of the designated two parking spots at the end of New Way Lane. They ticketed me for swimming in the water supply when in fact it was overcast and cool and I was actually putting up a few new boulder problems. I am planning to appeal the ticket.

Comments: Based upon our 7/21/13 trip, it looks like this area in under development with heavy equipment, blasting mats and extensive construction. The fate of these boulders appears to be in serious jeopardy.

Comments: Based on our trip on 7/21/13, it looks like they are developing this area, and it has become an active construction site with road building and blasting mats. The fate of access and the boulders themselves appears to be in serious jeopardy.

Comments: Hi Jim,

Please add those problems. I posted some problems up on the big boulder about 250 feet away from the New Wave Boulder. They are called the Beehive Boulders just for reference.

Comments: Jim,
I have not posted that boulder up yet but plan to shortly. I think we will use the historic reference and still call it Whale's Jaw as that is the way it appears on the map. There is a great V4 problem that is tall and proud on this boulder.

Comments: Hi Benjamin,
That sounds good..... just "add an area" under Hammond Pond and you should be all set.

Comments: That picture shows the problem Badass (V4). The slopey lip traverse 12-15 feet to the left of Badass is a new problem called Crowd Pleaser (V5-). To the right of the problem Badass about 8-9 feet is the left-trending finger crack The Force (V7). Finally, out on the front of that boulder is the problem Dream Team (V2).
