I learn to hate the red hex: its curved back, how hard it is to tell if a placement is good or not. It walks out on my third-ever lead, a slabby hand-to-fist crack at Hammond Pond in Newton, Massachusetts. The cliff is made of Roxbury puddingstone, petrified river mud studded with smooth cobblestones and sloping pockets where they’ve pulled out.
