This is a big old rock up on a ridge above North Adams, actually just over the line into Clarksburg. Jacob climbed a tree to get on top, then patiently brushed off as much snow as possible:
…Plenty of crash pads there for the efforts to come.
Half a dozen lines went that day, from moderate to hard. This project will go from the sit-start:
…though the initial move didn’t quite happen. Later, perhaps. Jacob sent it from one move higher, and the true sit will happen soon enough.
The tall arete to the right went as well, much more easily than the previous problem:
That wasn’t apparent from looking at it, until Jacob was on it and making it look easy.
That man can climb!
