Featured Route For G Wall (aka H Face)
The Cave, G Wall, Quincy Quarries. This climb is super-fun! Rated a 5.5 in Boston Rocks guide, but more like a  5.6 to me. Let your eye follow the rope up from the bottom; you'll see it running through the branches of a small tree growing on a block. Getting up onto that ledge without grabbing the tree is the crux.

The Cave 5.5 4b 13 IV+ 11 MS 4a  MA : Quincy Quarries : G Wall (aka H Face)
The start is the same as Little Inch on G Wall. When you reach a horizontal crack about one quarter of the way up, break away from Little Inch and angle up to the left. About half way up, you find yourself below a large block, with a small tree rooted above it. Your task is to get yourself past the tree without grabbing it! (I couldn't). This part of the climb is the crux and is a fun challenge. It's an awkward spot, so be careful, you don't want to smash into the block...[more]   Browse More Classics in MA

I must say, all these routes are well worth doing and worthy of at least 2 stars.
