Comments: as of 6/15/13 there are no usable bashies in place after the bolt in the seam on pitch two. The dead heads left are no good for hooking, i almost hooked micro features up to the belay before a small crystal i was hooking exploded and sent me for a big one. felt really hard the way i found it, but with usable bashies in place i would call pitch two freaky C3-.

Comments: I don't usually comment on routes, but I thought the other comments were a little sandbagged. I thought this climb was a one move gunks 5.11 and that the one move was really hard, like solid 5.11 hard and being tall doesn't help much. I am 6'1 and have climbed many 5.11's and 12's in the Gunks. Take that for whatever it's worth.

Comments: Even with the tiny nut holding, if you blow the crux you could slam your heels into the ledge that you start the crux sequence from. I've seen it happen a few times and it's not a nice fall.

Comments: there is an alternate start to this route which goes at 5.11+. start three feet right of the original start where there are two very small crimpers on the face above the wide crack. move strait up the face to under the roof, then move left and join original route.

Comments: what is the face to the left of this? anybody know? you do the crimper section on space invaders, then instead of moving right to where the climber in the picture is, you go strait up on more small holds. gear wasn't too good...

Comments: The initial corner is very fun, then you have to climb some run-out 5.4 to the GT and belay under the right facing corner.
The last pitch of this is burly. It felt like hard Gunks 5.9 to me, with an MF-quality pump factor. The gear is great on the last pitch though. Overall the whole climb was dirty, but I think with some travel this would be a great route, and unique for the Gunks because of the crack climbing.

Comments: i agree with david. small run-outs down low on so-so gear, and then you do a long run-out through the crux, but the gear you are climbing above at this point is bomber, just long fall potential. heads-up for sure

Comments: if you clip your rappel line to the second bolt on your way down, when you pull your rope it won't go in the drink.
