|This route is not as thin gear-wise as it looks when viewed from Quadraphenia, but it is almost as hard as it looks.|

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.
