Location: NY : Adirondacks : Lake Champlain Region : Poke-O-Moonshine : Poke-O-Moonshine Main Face : Green Onion (5.8)

Comments: Don't be turned away by the appearance of this pitch from the ground. In typical Poke-O fashion the climbing holds are clean despite a "dirty" appearance. In fact, do a few laps on it to clean it up some more. Very enjoyable climbing.

Comments: This is an amazing pitch on really nice rock. But, I consider it a pretty serious lead. There is good gear through the harder sections, but it may take some detailed placements from tricky stances to get bomber. Also the upper runout, though relatively easy and juggy, could have serious consequences if you are frazzled by the time you get to this point (i.e. big airtime if you fall). Make sure you have a solid head and experience placing small gear before you get on this. Not a climb to break in... more >>

Comments: This climb is stout!!!

My partner was going to send Mark a letter voicing her opinion regarding the grading of this climb after we rapped; but I convinced her not to because Mark is such a nice guy!!!

Throw all of your friends who think they can climb 5.10 on this one!

Comments: Fun thought-provoking moves. Not so bad once you figure out the moves. But until then you might think you are being sandbagged!

Comments: Went back to do this last year during peak black fly season thinking that there would be enough wind up there to clear them out, but we were horribly wrong. Wholly mother of god, the bugs were bad. My worst black fly experience to date. We were so miserable we bailed instead of climbing the fun second pitch. We ran back to the car. Maybe it was the fact that I was in class II hemorrhagic shock from the black flies, but the pitch felt hard and heady to me this time!

Comments: Great well protected steep and pumpy pitch, but never desperate. Worth doing with Tequila Mockingbird.

Comments: Super awesome well protected pitch. No move is crazy hard, it is just steep and pumpy. I also highly recommend the direct variation to the left.... maybe a bit more pumpy than the original line, but great moves, super exciting and perhaps easier to protect.

Comments: Try the direct 5.10 start. Makes for a more aesthetic line, and is well protected, with really only one hard move.

Comments: Nice long sustained pitch of face climbing. The steep exposed start looks improbable, but moderate holds and good gear appear. Bring extra small gear.

Comments: Yes, I would agree. Begin this route from the ground just before the trail heads uphill to the climbs to the right. Makes it a full length more aesthetic line and a quality pitch. The roof looks harder than it is and protects very well. Then the upper climbing is really fun.

Comments: Every time I've been here it's been dry. This is a terrific little cliff with a high concentration of clean fun moderate crack climbs next to each other. Several of the routes with fewer stars are also very good and well worth doing. Very comfortable and pleasant at the base as well.

Comments: This is an awesome pitch. I seem to recall placing a grey alien somewhere too, but I don't think it was mandatory. I was just kind of gripped because I was leading it in my friends shoes that were a size and a half too big because I forgot mine! Would like to go back and climb it with some proper edging shoes!

Comments: Awesome splitter hand crack. Full value 5.9. I think if the 5.9 leader cruises this they are ready for 5.10's. You can sew it up so get on it!

Comments: Really nice route. Short bushwacking. Watch for wasps nest on the route sometimes. Makes a nice warm up for climbing some of the harder routes across the street.

Comments: Yeah I don't know. Maybe I was off route, or it was particularly overgrown when I climbed it. I remember several of the gear placements I had to dig moss out with a nut tool. I guess I'm being outnumbered here so will have to go back and climb it again - perhaps I will reconsider!

Comments: This is a gem of a little pitch. Great on your way out when you want just a little more climbing. Awesome finger crack. Great gear everywhere.

Comments: This climb has changed character a bit since the rockfall, and in my opinion is less enjoyable and aesthetic, but the lower crack/ face moves are still cool. The new post rockfall corner felt a bit run-out to me, and might benefit from a bolt. Did anyone else have a similar experience?

Comments: Beautiful, well protected finger crack with great position, on great rock!!! I think one of the better finger cracks in the park.

Comments: This route is a real M-F'er!!! Tricky and strenuous to place gear! If you are feeling overly confident after climbing some of the other 10's on the cliff, go over and get on this for some self-flagellation!!!

Comments: Really cool, interesting pitch. So much better than it looks from the ground. The offwidth is fun too, and really adds to the character of the climb. Beware of taking a potentially dangerous pendulum fall onto a ledge at the crux, past the bolt.

Comments: Fantastic but short pitch! Don't let the lack of stars in the guidebook deter you. Also was just up there recently and someone replaced the old spinner bolt with a fat new one.

Comments: Great crack climbing! I would say old school 5.8! Definitely worth doing, along with Star Sailor to the left.

Comments: This route is nothing special in my opinion, compared to some of the other routes at Poke-O. Very dirty and vegetated when I climbed it. Unlike the typical Poke-O route that might look dirty from below and then has incredible clean climbing once you get on it, this one was actually dirty! Also remember the gear being sketchy, but maybe that's because I was digging moss out of the cracks in order to place gear. I plan to go back to this route and dump a few gallons of agent orange down it. Is tha... more >>
