Comments: This route is the 'Gold Standard' for 11d.

Comments: Moving directly over the last bolt ups it to 12a/b. Staying right of the bolt keeps it at 11, but somewhat scarier.

Comments: Um yeah, considering some tough hombres fell a brazillian times without ever getting a red-point.

Comments: This climb is a sick exercise of strenuous & insecure lay-backs and fist-jams. No OW section to be found anywhere on it. 3 #4's and 2 #3 camelots help.

Comments: This is a really amazing climb. On par with Carbs & Caffeine and Matinee. The 10+ direct is quite difficult but well protected. P2 is R IMHO. The pins are manky, backing them up is not possible, the crux pin is bent (I've never even clipped it) and that crux...while barely earning the grade is tenuous until the finger-jugs are reached, then it's a cruiser.

Comments: Did this back in '99 or '00 one cold October day. My feet cut out on the traverse under the final roof. Campused for a move or two and did a wild dyno to a jug. Yikes! I haven't dared a repeat, though I do fantasize of it.


Location: NY : The Gunks : The Trapps : h. The Arrow Wall - CCK : Erect Direction (5.10c)

Comments: I haven't done The Yellow Wall, so I can't say with certainty that Erect Direction is the best climb at the Gunks, but so far in my book, it is. All 3 pitches are truly stellar. The last pitch, while not of the gymnastic level of pitch 2, is just an amazingly ridiculous piece of climbing.

As for P2 - I got a no-hands rest...once. While hard, if done juuuust right it will feel like 10c, but if you're off by a millimeter tho....

Comments: Lead this today. I got 2pcs in. The first was way up there and the 2nd was nothing to brag about. A fall just below the crux face would be very serious. Very R.

Comments: This was my first climb here. Very nice climbing, albeit fearful in a few spots. Very R me thinks.

Comments: I just attempted an on-sight lead of this route. I'd go with 10+. Ground fall potential. Very spicy.

Comments: Just did this route two weeks ago. Lead every pitch. Having lead 36 other pitches during the previous 4 days, I was a bit knackered for this one. Each of the 5.10 pitches caused me some concern as I barely eeked out the on-sights. Beware of a scary traverse before reaching the base of the giant dihedral. The 5.9+ climbing up this dihedral is incredibly awesome. Though the vegetation on P2 & 3 detract from the overall quality of the route it is none-the-less well worth doing.

Comments: Just lead this route two weeks ago. Lead every pitch. The route is mostly 5.5 and lower, with occasional sections of harder terrain. An excellent route for the new 5.9 leader. Keep in mind though, this route will not prepare you one bit for other routes on this rock.

Comments: Just climbed this two weeks ago. Lead every pitch. Route finding was not too bad. Pithch 1 is signifacntly harder than pitch 2. The 5.8 bomb-bay chimney is challenging as was the "5.7" chimney encountered later. Though the best pitch was the 9+ traverse around and exposed areate high on the route with scant gear. Thrilling!

Comments: Just climbed this two weeks ago. Lead every pitch. Incredible! After the first pitch (11b, IMO), the nest 6 are solid & sustained 10 all the way. Only a few 9 moves here and there.

Comments: Did this route maybe in 2008. P3 is must do! Just find a sane way to get there!

Comments: In the past I've done M2B to P2 of this climb. But this past weekend I did P1 for the first time. Not G by any measure. One #3 steel nut 5ft below the bolt still makes for an R start. The Move from P1 to P2 is quite hard (I lead it in one pitch so the anchor was merely a lone point of protection for me). You miss this mysterious crux if you do M2B first.

Comments: An excellent adventure, especially if done in conjunction with P3 & 4 of Paralysis. The gear is definitely thin, so it warrants PG13. The areat moves on P2, while easy for the route, are quite spectacular!

Comments: While I haven't climbed a 1000 or so routes in this range, I have been on many a route all over the US at this grade. IMO, P2 of BM will rank in your top 3, if not the first spot in most awesome 5.9 pitches evah. The climbing is ridiculous for the grade. Not for the difficulty (it's not over rated), but for the shear "What the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot am I DOING HERE?" factor.
Note: This does not apply to followers of the pitch.

BTW: P1 would be a fright-fest for the 5.6 leader.

Comments: This is awesome route. Do NOT let the description deter you from P2 & P3. I did this soon after it was first bolted, and did not think in was dirty. Besides, if you want clean go to Gunks. The approach and entry into the final corner on P3 is incredible. IMO, this IS a 4 star route.

The corner will command your attention. Fledgling 10 leaders may feel threatened going up the corner.

Comments: Lead as an on-sight 5/9/2011. IMO, a tad light for the grade. The sequence is too easy to read and the holds are too positive to warrant a 10d rating. I'd go with 10c. Still an excellent route.
