A child on Child's Play

Description 

The easiest route at The North End.... A good practice route that can be split in to multiple pitches for practicing the logistics of multipitch climbing...
Toward the right side of the cliff just left of Kiddy Crack (5.7) look for the hand sized crack that is steep at first then easing off to a lower angle... Jam your way up with good protection and interesting moves...

Location 

Toward the right side of the cliff just left of Kiddy Crack (5.7) look for the hand sized crack

Protection 

Standard rack and a fixed pin..
There were two bolts at the top but they may have been lost in the recent rash of bolt chopping that hit The North End...

Last I saw (3 months ago), the tree between Child's Play and Recluse was slung and had rap rings...but no bolts, though.

The first rule is: you don't talk about bolts at the North End. The second rule is: you don't talk about bolts at the North End...

Does anyone else think this one feels like it has been greased with vaseline or something? It's an easy climb, but IMHO the rock just feels slippery.

no bolts ever on the route, rap from the tree, bolts unecessary. and no, the chopper doesn't read this.
