BETA PHOTO: Working through the initial moves. You can see Lau...

Climb the face 10' left of Laurel up to (crux) and past a bulge, then step left and up crack to chain anchors. The arete to the left, or any section of Laurel, are "off". The tough crux is pretty much right off the ground.


The face left of Laurel, in the Uberfall area of the Trapps.


No pro to protect early moves. You can TR using Laurel's chain anchors and a directional.

I think this route is kind of a one move wonder, and that one move is really hard. The rest of the route is 5.7 at best. The bottom (hard part) is interesting enough.

One move wonder. It's a technical, balancey move particularly for a shorty. Once you make the move the climb backs way down.

I agree with the "one move wonder" comments regarding difficulty. But the climb has great movement throughout. Definitely a worthwhile climb.

Interesting crux sequence. Worthwhile as top-rope with directional from Laurel anchor bolts.
(Not surprisingly, much more difficult if much shorter than 5ft7in / 170cm with normal reach.)

Historical Footnote: Bob Gilmore is 5'9", which makes that reach pretty desperate...but he has a mythological wingspan of 6'6", putting that key crimp well within his grasp.
Better known for his FA of The Sliding Board with Willie Crowther, Bob also explored a few Adirondack crags back in the day.

Thanks for the note, Jay. I'm 5'6+" with a negative ape index, and .... yeah, harder than 5.9.
