Nick Weinberg on the second pitch crux. Notice mungy area of loose rock under the roof that should be approached with caution.

Comments: Just got on this again after several years away. Someone finally replaced the bolts at the top of the arching finger crack pitch - thanks! The two bolts at the top of the halfmoon pitch might need to be replaced as well - they are looking pretty rusty, despite shiny hangers. The linking of pitch 2 and 3 in the route description seems odd to me, and I want to reiterate that linking 1 and 2 followed by 3 and 4 seems to make the most sense if you have doubles. And definitely do the crescent moon va... more >>

Comments: This is a really great route with three very varied pitches - it has a little bit of everything.

Here is some beta to keep in mind. The first pitch looks very dirty and vegetated and appears not to protect well from the base, however, adequate gear placements appear as you climb. Nonetheless, it would be very nice if someone felt like scrubbing that corner - it would just be a bit more aesthetic. The second pitch does have a loose mungy section below the roof. Care must be taken not to dislod... more >>

Comments: Awesome off hands/large fist splitter corner. As mentioned, no true off width moves. Deserves more stars and more traffic. The old BD 3.5 cam would probably be the best fit. I imagine this would be a cruise if you have large hands! I was surprised by how aesthetic and classic this pitch was!

Comments: I said "a bit of a serious lead." Not "a serious lead." So technically I said it was less than or some fraction of a serious lead and your comment Jim does not apply to me!!!

How about if we call it a "technical lead" or a "thoughtful lead."??

Whatever - the bottom line is: if you've got some small gear, and know how to place it, and have a decent lead head - go lead it! You will enjoy it.

The upper runout is really a non issue - very easy with gear not that far below you.

Comments: Thinking about heading to Taiwan for two weeks in late February to climb at Long Dong. Kind of scary story about both anchor bolts failing on someone. Any updates on what the status of a lot of the bolts is? Is it still worth going? Or are too many of the bolts of questional integrity to make it safe?

Thanks!

Comments: This is a great route that I think probably deserves three stars. Nice crack climbing then some tricky, thoughtful moves to the chockstone (bring a double length sling to sling this otherwise it is slightly runout - but easy above), and really cool textured rock in the chimney, to an exposed but easy stemming finish.

Comments: In the intro, I would say "sustained OFF fingers crack."

This thing is a forgotten gem for some reason, but fortunately it is very clean. Steep, sustained pure splitters like this are rare in the Adirondacks.

Tricky move at the top getting into the fist crack, especially if you are short with small hands like me! Really classic climb.

Comments: Yes, harder start for the vertically challenged, but makes it a fun bouldery move that is more rewarding once you get it!...

Comments: This felt tricky and awkward to me - but awesome! Felt harder than El Supremo for me......maybe it was the fragrant aroma of the rotting bear carcass that kept wafting up from the right as I was climbing it.....really!!

Comments: Don't bypass the crux on this one! It's one quick move with a huge bolt over your head!!!

Comments: This was probably my favorite climb at Eagle Falls. But I love crimpy faces and incuts. Amazing holds! I placed a green alien behind the hollow block below the crux bolt - made me feel better about clipping that crux bolt which is a bit harder if you are shorter.

Comments: I climbed it last year and didn't notice much if any loose rock. This route is very atypical for the Adirondacks. And also very fun. Nice find Jim!

Comments: Awwkward and pumper climbing than Johnny Tsunami. Not as enjoyable in my opinion. A lot of the edges you think are going to be positive just seem to be facing the wrong way.....

Comments: Finally got on this. It is good, and there is protection at the difficult sections when you need it. One or two RPs in the corner are nice. But in general the falls would be clean, so I think despite some spaced bolts it is a pretty safe route.

Granted it was a hot and humid day - but it felt pretty stiff for 5.10!
