Description 

Start 5 right of The Donkey. Climb straight up to the MT ledge. Clip high and then enjoy the delicate crux. Easier climbing after the 4th bolt will take you to the anchors. Delicate moves on good rock. Perhaps a bit spicy if 5.7 is the top of your game.


Location 

Right side of the wall, the only fully bolted climb.


Protection 

4 Bolts to anchors

Matt Conroy is probably going to kill me for this, but I would rate this climb about a grade above what he proposed. I feel the crux is very similar to that on Gold Digger at Rumney (www.mountainproject.com/v/gold-digger/105927100).

Matt C is a typical Adirondack/CT sandbagger so your comment is not surprising DQ!

I'll leave the final grade up to the community.

Nabbed the third ascent on this bad boy after Davis and Matt! great job, thanks for all the scrubbing.

I'd call it 5.7b/c ; ) ... an easy climb if you use your feet.
