Description 

Might be the best boulder problem in RI (or maybe not, but it is good). Climb the obvious tall arete on the right hand side of the face against the trail!

Please make a special effort to brush off all evidence of your chalk when you are done. The area around the ponds is a nationally recognized natural area.

Note - The beginning sequence has changed recently (spring 2015). A small block came out (or was removed) from the rail on the left side of the arete. This created a 2" inch deep pocket that can be used as a starting hold.
The move off of this pocket up to the angled edge on the left side is now easier than it was originally.
The entire line now goes at v5/6.

Protection 

pads. Remember to get them out of the trail if you hear people coming so you are not blocking it.
