Comments: Robert, I never said that the route could be rapped with a single 70m rope. In the comment above, I said (or meant to say) that if you are rappelling with 70m ropes [notice the plural], then you will have excess rope to deal with.

To be clear, the route is setup to be rappelled with double 60m ropes.

The guidebook recommends two 60m ropes for rappelling almost all routes at Rogers Rock.

Comments: I think this is one of Poke-O's great lines. The difficult bits are quite well-protected, but there's definitely some spice in the easier sections.

Comments: This route has a super dirty and uninspiring lower section, but it's worth it for the quality climbing on the clean face above. Very spicy: bring your A game. As of this writing, there's no bolt anchor, but rather some long slings on a tree that hang over the edge.

Oh yeah -- the only "handcrack" is at the very top.

Comments: This route is listed as a toprope, which is true but you have to lead a neighboring route first, or rappel in from above.

Comments: The crux is a really big move, or more probably a dyno after the 4th bolt. If you move left, you can avoid this crux staying on big holds, perhaps reducing the grade a bit.

Comments: This climb is a good break from the other pump-fests on the wall. It's one technical move after another with good stances between. Excellent!

Comments: I thought the zigzag crack start added excellent variety to the classic face above. There's a ton of climbing between the first and second bolts; it does add an unfortunate swing for the second, though.

Comments: Yeah, I think a 30m rope would work OK. The routes are short!

Comments: Hi Chuck, you created a superb route here!

I think the existing protection placement is masterful. If you think it can be longer, then yay!!! If you do, something to consider is to keep the lower anchor for those with 60m ropes? (Also, it's a useful anchor for the mixed/ice route that starts up the Thunderhead corner.) Another consideration is that this is the first pitch of an amazing, three-pitch, full-length linkup (MtS to Cirrhosis to Under the Influence).

Glue-ins are nice for sure, but p... more >>


Location: NY : Adirondacks : High Peaks Region : Wallface : Mission to Mars (5.11c)
By: Jim Lawyer When: Oct 5, 2014

Comments: This route was once called "Shining Path", a name invented by locals due to lack of FA info. Since the first edition of Adirondack Rock, the FAers came forward. The correct name is Mission to Mars.

P1 is quite good. P2 is 5.11c (or so I thought) with some friable rock. There is a third aid pitch and a high anchor.
