    I set my rope up in an M configuration on Desperado face to start. The wall was nice and dry, the ground just a little wet, hence the tarp. While I was waiting for Emily, two guys, Sean and Scott, showed up and climbed with me here. "The Bulge" (5.7+) is the route covered by the left rope. According to Boston Rocks, "a variation uses the layback arete on the left". So the actual route does not use the arete. Everyone agreed the rating is sandbagged; it's more like a 5.9. There's a real bulge on the face about midway up. Getting over it is the crux. "Desperado" (5.6) is the route up the middle of the face that slightly veers right to follow the quartz features up to the anchor. "Stage Fright" (5.5) is the juggy warmup climb to the right. This wall is awesome! For more info check out mountainproject:
