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.

The route goes a bit to the left of the rope. If you top-rope this and go straight up instead of following the bolts, watch out for loose rock in the middle.
