Polly's Cove - Joey Ramone Area
Great late fall/early spring location. Very protected area from northern winds with great southern exposure.

1. Joey's Cold Body V0 - V1 

Have fun, lots of variations here.

2. Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue V2 SDS
Climb up the quartzy bits.

3. Chain Saw V7 
Traverse the lip from right to left and top out more gracefully than Sea Breeze. It's like having a Chain Saw in your hands (holding on to the chain side while someone revs the gas). (FA Sonnie Trotter 2001)

    3.a  See Saw V8  
    Link Sea Breeze into Chainsaw backwards. Gain a decent crimp near the very bottom of                   Chainsaw to top out. Provocative moves.

4. Sea Breeze V6 SDS 
Place your feet just right, squeeze really hard on small positive holds, pull on and toss left, then right, then do an awkward topout as your friends laugh at your flailing. Fun!

5. Simon's Problem V6 SDS
Hard sit start on crimps, climb straight up.

6. Sheena is a Punk Rocker V3 SDS
Hard sit start on crimps, then pumpy traverse right on rail.

7. Havana Affair V5 SDS
Start straddling the obvious bulge on the left side of the boulder and climb straight up. The rail is in.

8. Beat on the Brat V6
From awkward start on double gastons or matched sidepull, paste feet on or do preposterous dropknee and reach up to sloping edge to top out. More fun than it looks. Also sage advice from the Ramones.

9. Hey Ho V4 
Start on the slopey jug and climb up over bulging feature. (FA Chris Burns 2013)
