The start is pumpy and bouldery, and can be protected with a #4 Friend. Pull over the small roof onto the slab above. Follow the finger crack in the huge corner until it ends. Step left to another , shorter finger crack (pin)to another roof. Protect, and get ready for the crux. Pull over the roof on the right into another corner (pin), very sequential. Head up and left to a two bolt anchor w/ rap rings.


The first climb you get to from the trail. Fairly Obvious.


Standard rack. #4 Friend protects the beginning.

What a great route! Perfect rock, fun moves, good (but spaced) gear throughout. This is definitely a central NH classic.
