Natpack on the Southeast Arete (V1).


For the intrepid few willing to bushwack and get lost to find this solitary boulder, I hope you will feel rewarded by this fun and secluded problem.

The route ascends the prominent Southeast corner of the Extensions 3 block. It is the only genuine line on the boulder.

Stand start matched on an obvious flake and pull onto the boulder. A few moves up and left will get you set up for the big reach out right towards the sloper.

A bit of tension and balance will get you through the crux, then it's just a good old fashioned topout straight up the middle.

This route is short and goes smoothly at V1 if you've got the beta figured out. While it is not a destination climb (are there any of those in Mass.?), it is certainly a fun way to enjoy the great outdoors.

A sit-start is possible and might add considerable difficulty, but the holds are a bit sharper than the normal start.

Also, I've had 2 sightings of a fearless Fisher Cat here, so be on the lookout for some wildlife to complete your sense of adventure.


This is the only prominent route on the Extensions 3 Boulder. It ascends the Southeast corner.
