Comments: Yeah, a lot of the routes on this wall are sorta tough to find, if only because "hike 100 feet from X and start by the tree" is so commonly the description. You didn't happen to snap a photo of the route did you, Matt? I think that'd help people.

Comments: I think that there is a missing 4th bolt in the topo for Maripoosa. I don't recall its exact location and can't see it in the high resolution photo, so I haven't marked it. If you know where it is, feel free to add it! Thanks!

Comments: @brian Romeo's Ladder was your first climb in 1978? That's awesome! It must have been much harder (but doable) in the footgear of the time. My first time up this route I was wearing Doc Martin boots.

It's definitely a popular route, and with good reason.

Comments: Did they finally get around to putting in an anchor here? Or do you still need to use the alternate to the left?

Comments: This is a great line, full of really interesting features and holds. After about 80 feet of cruiser terrain, the top was a welcome puzzler. Save some gas for the finish: it felt stout at the grade.

Very enjoyable. Now that there are two excellent routes right next to each other, I'd make a special trip just to climb this and B-b-buttress.

Comments: Not sure what I did differently, but I was able to clip the bolt in the roof from below without touching the crux holds. I stood further left and did have to downclimb a step to set up correctly for the crux. I'm 5'11" with a neutral index.

A 5'5" tall lady I was climbing with was also able to touch the bolt from below, but for her it was a stretch.

Maybe a body position issue for those having trouble?

All that said: wow, the crux killed me. Very hard for me to get the right position to make... more >>

Comments: It's been almost 4 years since I was there, so my guess is I either remembered wrong, or a bolt was added. Updated.

I can't speak to the grade, though I'll say that if I thought it was mislabeled when I climbed it, I'd have noted that in the description. There was a piece of notebook paper that listed the routes and grades posted on a stick when the area was being developed: I just listed the grade that was on the paper.

Given how loose the blocks on that end of the wall were when the routes... more >>

Comments: Andy, I think you're right. When posting my comment above, I fell into the escalation trap. So for that, I apologize.

In any case, I left the mid-atlantic long ago, so I'm not familiar with where the noobs go these days. How about we edit the description to be a combination of my description and yours?

[ EDITED TO ADD ] I updated the description with your comments, bumped up the grade, and gave you credit in the description. If you'd like me to ping an admin to make you the route owner, lemm... more >>

Comments: I have indeed climbed the great chimney. But at the time I submitted it to MP, I didn't know too much about writing a good route description.

[ inflammatory stuff edited out ]

When I climbed the route, the old guide listed it at 5.1. The new guide also lists it at 5.1. That doesn't make it suitable for a newb. The very best way to suggest an upgrade is to use the consensus rating on MP.

As the original poster of the route -- but not as the FA or guidebook author -- I felt it was important t... more >>

Comments: I tightened the left anchor bolt today, but it'll continue to work loose until someone hangs chains on the hangers: when you thread the hangers and rap, it torques the hanger counterclockwise. I'm visiting from Rumney, so I didn't bring the gear to fix it right. If you want to climb this route and there aren't chains on it, bring a wrench or a medium stopper to back up with in the crack.

All that said, it was a nice route if you stay off the rotten stuff to the right.

Comments: While this route is a really easy romp, it was a great way to get a pitch in and start shaking off the cobwebs (since it's not *quite* a warm-up) while my friends were all looking in the guidebook and trying to decide what to climb first.

Comments: I noticed that the left anchor nut tends to come loose because the tension from a rappel on the rings turns the nut and hanger counter-clockwise. It's been loose every time I've topped out on this route, so I extended it with a couple quicklinks and put clips on it.

Hopefully that keeps things a bit more snug and keeps your ropes happy! Please don't TR on the quick clips. Thanks!

Comments: Edited the grade to reflect the new guidebook rating and the consensus rating. My original post used the grade from NEClimbs.

Be careful when starting up the face above the blocky, broken ledge. Some loose stuff has pulled off of there recently.

Comments: I like this route, but it doesn't get a star. My wife and I climbed it this weekend for our anniversary. We'll probably climb it again.

The gear under the nose (before bolt 3) is not confidence inspiring: very rotten and shallow. If 5.8-5.9 is your top grade, I suggest a rehearsal on TR. This should be possible by climbing Gaggle of Geese first.

Guidebook says 5.9 but I think its either soft or upgraded because of the pro.

Comments: Near the top, there is 9mm accessory cord coming out of a horizontal crack on the left. Is there a nut buried in there somewhere, or is it a thread? Super cool. Next time, I'm clipping it anyway. :)

EDITED TO ADD: Sneoh is correct: Citrasolve follows the line to the LEFT of Orange Crush. If you hop on the line to the right expecting a 5.10c, you'll find the climbing a little stiff for the grade (it's Tropicana, at 5.11a).
