BETA PHOTO: The thin line up the center...


An improbable and impossible looking face with tiny crimps and bad feet. Start sitting on a dish-like hold at the lip of the overhang with a high right foot. Power up right hand to a slopey hold before moving through some microscopic crimps up to the topout.

A hold has broken near the top. Condition of the climb is unknown.


On the back of the Whip Boulder, just right of Bring the Ruckus, left of Dopeman.

I spoke to Dave about this climb earlier this year. Though he hasn't checked it out recently, he finds it hard to believe that anything significant has broken on it. He said he doesn't remember a single hold that he thought was possible of breaking on this climb.

He's also bummed/surprised that it hasn't been repeated/is rarely repeated as he thought it was a really cool and improbable line and probably the hardest climb that he put up in Pway/the Northeast (harder than 'Child Of The Storm'). He speculated that it might be closer to v14.

Just thought it would be nice share his thoughts since this line seems to have fallen off the radar for hard climbing in the Northeast. Not the most aesthetic line around and not a style of climbing that is popular these days, but definitely a testpiece for New England.

Pete Ward told me it had one repeat by a Canadian climber years ago and he indicated that something had broken on the top holds to pull over onto the slab and no repeats since.
