Access point for City Lights, etc.  The dubious 3-pin anchor at the top. Having  to feed the rope through just a single quicklink makes the walkoff or other rappel options look pretty good.  Most of the way across the P2 traverse, just before a wasp's nest (c. summer 2014). <br /> <br />To avoid rope drag, it's better to stop and belay in the alcove just past this point, rather than trying to link the traverse. The route returns to the vertical at a good belay stance near the shrub seen partly in the sun.  Shawangunks  The Slicer
