Base of D Wall (showing the drill holes).


This is a small wall just to the right of C Face. In fact, it is really a continuation of that face. Fingers, the right-most route of C Face, is on the left margin of this face. It continues with E Face on its left. There was a fair bit of loose rock on this face. There are apparently bolt anchors at the top of the wall. The drill holes on this face make for some unusual climbing. The descent is on the right.

This climb links the lower three drill holes with the upper two. Well named. One variation of Drills Holes eliminates the large "K-te;" ledge 12 feet up, as well as the "Ronco" and "Acme" holds. Another variation uses the right two lower drill holes as the start. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in MA
