Have you recently gotten ready to send only to realize you were lacking a shoe?  Have you been out lately to try your luck on Mayhem or to work your new highball project on the Wooden Ship?  What you lack I have found.  Shoot me a message and if the shoe fits you'll wear it.

We usually spend a week each summer right near there, so I'm psyched to get some more info...

Anyone who frequents here climb these lately?

So pitch 3 of Here Comes the Sun at Hump's looks like a fantastic pitch of 5.7 first done by Michael Hartrich & Paul Ross in 1973 (pg 260 new book).

"A superb pitch. Move right and climb the long, left facing flake/corner, the "7". At the top of the corner, under-cling leftward along the roof to the tree belay of Straight Up... or pull over and climb the knobby face above to easier slabs and the top".

The topo on Pg 258, and looking at it from the road, certainly supports this being a great pitch.

The problem is getting to it via the original route is 5.8X. I thrashed my way up the first pitch of Jagen Die Segen today, some of the nastiness 5.7 I have ever seen. Serious choss, I probably cleaned 50+ lbs of rock from the pitch as most holds came off in my hand with little pressure. The "birch tree" that was a landmark in the new guidebook was hanging on by a thread and I cut that loose. You can sling some new birches growing out of that crack, and get a .75 a couple feet to the right for an anchor... but it is a serious mank fest getting there.

I plan to go back and investigate the 2nd pitch of Giucco Piano, as that might be reasonable, and hunt George down to pick his brain a bit... but thought someone might have some solid beta to reach that "7" without climbing choss.

Side note, the first half of P1 of Jagen Die Seben is quite good and you can bail out left to a new bolted anchor above JB's new 5.11ish thing.... a worthwhile short 5.7 IMO...

Looks like there are some big boulders on the north side of the pond according to Bing's birdseye view I am definitely going to check it out when in the area  .

Just posted this video up on neb.com:  http://www.newenglandbouldering.com/news/2014/9/17/deathly-hallows-fa-video

Was wondering is there much bouldering at this spot?  Nothing on mountain project and Googling around didn't reveal much either....
