Comments: I've always climbed P1 of Three Doves to access P2, but finally gave P1 a whirl this weekend due to the holiday crowds. Holy moly, that is serious and runout R for sure. I'm not sure if I missed a placement or two (all too shallow to my mind), but the runout after the loose flake/block was quite serious and I'd say more like 20-25'. Broken ankles would have been a good outcome. Still, the climbing itself was fantastic, and the movements thoughtful. Absolutely great pitch, but terribly spooky. I ... more >>

Comments: Great climb. First pitch is definitely polished (heck, they all are to some extent!). The roof traverse felt very familiar to a Gunks climber - the jug holds are there just like they should be right under the roof! The following pitch was a little scary, as 2 Austrians rapped down on me and knocked a ton of gravel off. Couple of new dents in the helmet, but fortunately no one got hurt. Just be sure to watch for folks rapping the route and clip the plentiful fixed pro as you go to be safe.

Comments: Easy to accidentally go too high on Pitch 4, avoiding the crux V+ pitch altogether (you actually cut a pitch - getting to the Pitch 5 belay at the end of Pitch 4). Still, pitches 6 and 7 are fantastic. Great climb and well worth it, but try to hit it on a warm day as it follows the left (north) side of the arete most of the way.

Per RKM's comment - make sure you hit up the super exposed dihedral on the right to start pitch 7 - spectacular!

Comments: Not sure how the eliminates (e.g. the 1' band of holds) reconcile with the 5.9 rating. I got shut down trying to get through the overlap. There's literally nothing I could find in that 1' band within reach above the left side crimper in order to get feet over the lip. What am I missing? This thing felt super hard.

Comments: We were next door on Flyin H when Mike sent it. He stopped by afterward - really cool guy and modest about the send. Congrats Mike - hope to hear more awesome sends from you in the future!
