4 out of 5 stars Duet Direct

Guidebooks list this as 5.10+, maybe the climb is closer to its old grade of 5.9 (!). A great pitch, reminiscent of Devil's Tower climbing in that you're on your feet a lot, but it gets pumpy because the feet actually aren't that good. With great protection and sustained climbing up a beautiful feature, this would be one of the most sought-after and frequently climbed "tens" in New England if it were closer to the road.
