This is the main original cliff band at Attitash.

Getting There 

Across the river there is a large red painted splotch on a tree. Stay to the left of this tree following a vague path over some knock downed trees then head up steeply following a kind of gully. This brings you the the left side of the cliff. You should see an off-width with a tree growing out of it. To the left of the tree is Choo Choo and to the right of it is How Green Was My Valley.

A somewhat pumpy and sustained mixed route that will test your balance and footwork. Pitch 1: Climb a series of horizontals with good gear to a bolt. pull through the bolt (crux move) into the obvious handcrack. Climb the crack to the top trending left over the bulge as the crack runs out (watch the loose blocks on the right). Delicate moves lead you to a ramp, second bolt and rest.
