JAG leading Harvest Moon, 7/31/2011
A portion of Near Trapps has been closed to climbing MORE INFO >>>


The Gunks are not known for steep cracks, but there are some...

Start in the chimney of White Pillar and move out to the obvious crack when you can. If you stem high enough you can start with hand jams; if you move out low, it's fingers. Or you can avoid the chimney altogether for harder variations.


Just follow the base of the cliff till you see it. It's the crack on the left wall of a giant right facing corner. The chimney is White Pillar, and on the main face, to the right, is Honky Tonk Woman (recognized by a bolt).


Well protected with a standard rack. Medium cams and nuts. There is a sling anchor at the top. Easy to top rope as well (see photo), but no reason not to lead.

It is a great climb like Jtree's Left Ski track. Pretty pumpy but there are tons of good feet. Jamming is good but not easy. They are all there.

Fun Climb. Good climb to do in hot weather, mostly hit by shade

Excellent route. Protection before and while accessing the crack can be a little tricky. I found doubles, with a #4 low, and the bolt on the adjacent route to be helpful. The chimney is pretty reasonable, though.
