Right before crux sequence

Cold Turkey 5.10c 6b 20 VII E2 5b  NH : Rumney : ... : Center Section
First lead in a 32 degree downpour of sleet! Knowing Chris one would also assume he did it in bare feet!This line ascends the cliff from the lowest point of the meadows, down in the pit between the slabs.Interesting moves that might be hard for the grade start you out. Crimps and palming can be used in conjunction on the starting section, keep an open mind and this will go easier. Then you get up to the slab above and enjoy the best climbing in all of the Meadows Area....[more]   Browse More Classics in NH

As far as I know it is an unfinished project. I would like to know more though.

It was a forgotten project for many years, but I think it has been sent. I think it's called "Hold Me" and goes at 13a or so. I heard this second hand, so this may or may not be correct.

Jay I talked to a local about this route he said it was infact called Hold Me and went at 13a he didnt know who did the route. I figured a second opinion was good to confirm this...
