Comments: I like this climb better than the East Face Direct. Less crowded, but there is also a lot less gear, so you have to be comfortable with running it nearly a full rope length.

Comments: I actually thought this was considerably easier than Dementia. Hard for a 5.9, as you have to place gear while hanging out on the overhanging section, but the hold there is good, and a medium sized slotted nut is quick to place with the left hand. One awkward move in the middle brings you to easier climbing. Walk off is recommended. I think this is the most sustained and best 5.9 at this crag, and may be the best climb at the cliff, it's a toss-up between this and Twofer's for me. I like th... more >>

Comments: This might be the best 5.8 in the state. Excellent gear, exposure, some face climbing an committing moves. Highly recommended.

Comments: Tricky placements, small cams are advisable. I would say PG pro if that was an option.

Comments: Chains have been moved to other routes (not by me), they were a bit unnecessary. Bolts at the top need to be replaced due to corrosion.

I would say the crux move at the roof is closer to 5.9 than 5.8, so I give it a 5.9-. Also, getting to the first bolt may be a challenge for a 5.8 climber to onsight.

Comments: I climbed both the left and right sides of this route yesterday. It was like climbing two completely different climbs. I would say the right side is a tad easier, better bolted, and much more fun.

Comments: P1 is definitely 10b, not d. It's easy to get off route on this one. If you head up from the anchors, you end up on P2 of tow the line, 10a. Head right I guess if you want to do the "true route" This part of the cliff definitely feels grid bolted.

Comments: Checked this climb out on Sunday, Nov 31. There was a lot of snow up there, with wind blowing more snow into the funnel. We opted out. If you have skis, it would make the approach a bit easier, the ski-in is relatively flat.

Comments: I lead the right side, all the way up to the dead tree for a nice 35m route. If you climb this one, bring a 70m rope if you want to run it all the way to the top. This made for a nice 3- 2+ climb.

Comments: Dry up there! Sneakered in the approach almost to Chasm Lake. Ice on the Dutchman is still fat, pocked out, which makes for an easy climb. A lot of snow climbing for 20 feet of ice, but maybe that's alright with you....

Comments: I think this is one of the best 9s at the crag. It is certainly safe. There are good rests once you get through the roof, probably not what the FA intended, but if it's close enough to clip the bolts, IMO, the rest is on the route.

Comments: Very surprised by the 5.7 rating of this climb. No harder than 5.5 IMO. I have done harder 5.4s at the Gunks!

Comments: I think the direct start on this one goes at about .10c . I don't really see the point in bolting only half the route, the addition of two bolts to this route would make it a much safer line. I actually climbed to the horizontal before realizing I needed gear. This was in part because I could see bolts higher up, and also saw the two bolts close together down low, so I figured it was well bolted. I would not be surprised if others made the same mistake.

Comments: I also think this is a good lead. I think the bottom part is pretty sustained for 5.7. Not a great climb for the blossoming 5.7 leader.

Comments: One of the better routes at this crag. An aspiring 5.10 leader should hop on this one, as it is an easy tick, and the clips are safe.
