Location: NY : Adirondacks : Arietta Region : Good Luck Mountain : House of Cards (5.13a)

Comments: Zabba -- good point, but it does have a bolt, and I've seen people clip it. But yeah, some people don't, so this counts.

Wheelin' and Dealin' -- forgot about that. It's new.

There are also .13s on private land...could be some pure trad ones in there somewhere.

Comments: This was successfully TRed in 1997 at .12a, and named Eagle Crack. Hence, the name and grade here need to be updated.

Comments: Actually, I think this is the only trad .13 in the park (on public land). The route on the Tsunami Wall is all-trad 5.14.

...or am I missing something?

Comments: A note to those adding boulder problems at McKenzie Pond:

Many problem descriptions added in this section were taken word-for-word from the local guidebook. Obviously this is not allowed on Mountain Project. And, no, changing a single word in a sentence doesn't fly either.

Please refrain from plagiarizing guidebook descriptions.

Descriptions deemed to be plagiarized will be removed from the site.

Comments: This is "Rule of the Bone", right of Lions.

Comments: This is "Rule of the Bone", which is just right of "'Lions on the Beach".

Comments: You find out info here here.

"A block fell from P1 of The Snatch [route 75, page 61] leaving a blank section and some dangerous choss. This has been cleaned up and, with the addition of a bolt, is now an excellent, safe pitch. The grade has not changed."

Comments: GK - I think you mean the second bolt, not the third. There are only two bolts on this route.

Comments: I think it's PG because of the pro difficulties at the start after the bolt -- you'll fall below the belay. I'd be happy with "G", though.

Comments: To me, off-width means "larger than fists". If you have small hands, then this qualifies. Otherwise, it's "off-hands", meaning cups or fists. Whatever -- it's splitting hairs. Suffice to say that it's an awkward size and protects well with 3" - 4" cams.

Comments: Straight up is .11c. Alternatively, you can start on the neighboring route to the left and traverse in above the .11c part, making the route (in my opinion) .10d/.11a.

Comments: Pitch two is an exercise in climbing lichen-encrusted jugs. Still fun, though.

Comments: I found this deceptively difficult, pretty stiff for a 9.

When the angle eases, you can traverse right and lower from the fixed anchor on Plumb Line (setting you up to TR that route).

Comments: I climbed this for the first time recently. I was able to get a good micro cam (#00 or #0 TCU) to protect the opening moves off the ledge.

Like Cannon, this place is falling apart.

Comments: For what it's worth, here's what I recorded word-for-word immediately after climbing the route. (I use a digital recorder to capture these details at the cliff while it's fresh and all the gear used in the route is in a pile.)

"Small TCUs, #2 Camalot critical, double yellow Alien, double green Alien, 1 red Alien, #0 TCU critical. ...There's a good horizontal below the roof. Make the clip, then move right and make a long reach to a bucket right of the bolt, then another really long r... more >>

Comments: Wow, what a varied line! -- a handcrack, then an arete, and finally and steep crimpy face. Can lower with a 70m rope. Super good!
