Minuteman Tower, East Face
 

Shirley & I climbed this fun route on a Sunday in August of 2005 after having climbed the NW Corner of NEWS the day prior (if memory serves). There was a duo of Canadians who bailed from below the fun pitches & a trio of cc.com regulars ahead of us. I recall flakey rock on the first 3 pitches and great crack climbing on (our) pitches 5 and 6!
