Description 

This is a small face that lies just to the left of North Face. There are 2 old bolts above this face.

Per Steve Marr: R Face is one of the first graffiti laden craglets that you encounter when approaching the Quarries from the main parking area on Ricciuti Drive. It is a short, forty foot slab that offers a handful of moderate routes from 5.3 to 5.7. All but two of the climbs originate on the left side of the formation, while a pair of climbs and the descent route are found on the right side. Due to the fact that nearly every square inch of this wall seams to be covered with paint, none of the routes are particularly noteworthy.

Getting There 

This is a fairly easy craglet to find, as it lies just left of the distinct North Face. It is somewhat broken in appearance.

Per Steve Marr: R Face is hard to miss. As you approach the quarry from the parking lot on Ricciuti Drive, R Face is the first one that you see. Look for a slabby, low angle face with something resembling an American flag painted in the center near the top, and the graffiti "SKAMS" on the right side. Just to the right of R Face is another short, steep face (S Wall). If you're on the other side of the quarry, find the overhanging Q Face, and walk around the right side until you're at the base of R Face.

Featured Route For R Wall (aka P Face)
Float Like a Butterfly follows the light drizzle of paint in the middle of the photo. Climb up slab to the right of the "Kilroy" graffiti. When you reach the bulging rock feature about 20 feet up, you are good. Continue straight up over the giant blocks, towards the jutting high block where your anchor goes over the edge (at the "AB" graffiti in the photo).

Float Like a Butterfly 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b  MA : Quincy Quarries : R Wall (aka P Face)
The route goes straight up. The first 20 feet or so is pretty smooth slab, although it's not horribly steep. Climbing this slab is the crux. Above that are giant blocks that you can easily clamber up to get to the anchor.The good part is that there are a few features on the slab that you can lock onto. The bad part is that there's graffiti at the bottom, making it a little tough to get off the ground....[more]   Browse More Classics in MA
