This approximately 125' climb is one pitch, but you will have to climb something else to reach the starting ledge. The starting ledge is about 120' up the wall.

From the ledge where Boston, Kracken, and Newark meet follow the line of bolts up and left. Two bolts are found on the head wall as you leave the ledge. Four more bolts are found on the lower angle slab above the head wall. Three of the upper bolts and the top anchors are shared with Mark of the Beast.

To descend either take two ropes to rap, walk off, or rap from the News Wall anchors on a single 60m.


Climb the first pitch of Boston or Kraken to gain the large starting ledge. See the topo found on the Cheap Wine or Devil's Slide pages.


6 bolts protect the climb. The first bolt is shared with Kracken and the last 3 bolts are shared with Mark of the Beast. In addition, there are double bolted rap anchors located on the starting ledge and at the top. However, it requires 2 ropes to rap off unless you rap from the designated rap station at News Wall.
