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 very hot and humid day, but all three of us who climbed it - experienced climbers living in places with stiff ratings (ADK's, Gunks, and Mt. Lemmon) all agreed that the grade of 5.10c was absolutely absurd!

I just cruised a bunch of 11'... more >>

Comments: Cool, relatively short crux sequence that requires a little thought on the upper pillar, and beautiful incut edges on the lower section. Definitely worth climbing if you are climbing Three Degrees to the left....

Comments: This climb is awesome and pretty pumpy and very sustained, although no single move is super hard.

The crux move out of the crack is not actually that hard, but the problem is keeping it together at that point to figure out and pull the move.

Further supports my weariness of the 10d grade!!

Comments: Really cool arÍte pitch!

First move can be burly if you go straight up. You can go right on better holds but risk a pendulum into the corner.

Upper arÍte is awesome.

This climb, along with Oracle and Two Evil Deeds are "must do's" at Ark Wall.

Deserves more stars!!!

Comments: This route is F-ing incredible!!!!

It is an aesthetic, dramatic, exposed, clean, sweeping dihedral that is uncharacteristic of most climbs in the East.

This climb is so underappreciated and under-climbed.

The gear is decent in my opinion.

It is stout and sustained! "5.9" for the 5.10 climber. If you are solid at the 5.10 grade you need to get on this. Bring some rp's for the thin section leading into the chimney as I recall.

If you link the first two pitches from the ground you create a tre... more >>

Comments: One of my favorite climbs at Shelving Rock. Two well protected cruxes. Great rock on the upper section.

Can protect the lower section with 0.75 Camalot and small nut with long slings. Upper crack can be protected with an optional tcu or small alien sized piece. No other gear required.

Comments: I was planning on bolting a via ferrata system up this entire climb and charging summer tourists to take them to the top. Just wanted to check with the local climbing community before doing this. I'll make sure the hardware is the same color as the rock for ethical reasons.

Comments: Yeah, there is gear getting to the first bolt, but as I recall there are some crux moves clipping or getting to the second or third bolt. Botching this would result in a fall on that ledge.

But great climb and overall safe and very much worth doing. Three great varied pitches!

Comments: Finally climbed this a few weeks ago after years of passing it over. Stout, adventurous route. We did the whole climb in two pitches which worked well. This is a serious route. There is potential for a dangerous pelvis or femur-breaking pendulum if the second blows the unprotected moves before the top of the traditional second pitch belay. The moves are not super hard, but an inexperienced climber could get into trouble here.

The last pitch was one of the harder 5.6's I've ever done. Maybe I wa... more >>

Comments: Fun pumpy sport climb, and one of the few warm ups on the wall. If you can get up this you can get up pitch 1 of Kingdom Come. Also do Wall Ruler.

Comments: Climbed this route today. The first major hold/block flexed and creaked when I pulled out on it. I thought it was going to break off but it didn't. If this thing breaks off, which it probably will, you could get hurt since it looks to be a decent size. After leading it, I climbed it a second time on TR to see if you can avoid this hold, and you can. You can also pull down on a hold on the top of it instead of pulling outward which should put less leverage on it. I was glad to have stick-clipped ... more >>
