Do overhanging face to the left of " The Bitch" towards the top gets really crazy with little overhangs and pointy rock formations.


Top Rope or Trad Top Rope placement can be set up by scrambling up " West Slab" 5.3 to place gear.

When I climbed here on a regular basis, I felt this was the hardest climb at the Palisades. There were several sections that were at least 5.11+ with no place to rest in between. The route finishes with an overhanging hand crack that is still fairly hard but seems like a breeze because you are not hanging on by the tips of your fingers for the first time since you left the ground.

A fun Bouldery start and the overhanging hand crack make this a classic agree with Jim on this one!
