Along the Cliff 

last area: Slime Wall


Main Features: Sleepy Hollow has more of a lost-in-the-woods (read: solitude!) feel, as the cliff is generally shorter and lower here. It's more a collection of individual routes, than an wall or a coherent area. Still, there are some truly worthwhile routes to discover hidden behind the vegetation!

Approach: Generally, these routes are approached by either the very last trail before the S-turn in the carriage road, or by walking into the woods at the first apex of the S-turn. See individual route descriptions.

Descent: Varies by route; typically tree anchors.

10,000 Restless Virgins 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b  NY : The Gunks : ... : l. Sleepy Hollow
10,000 Restless Virgins is representative of many Gunks climbs as it has a wonderful name (anyone know the story behind it?) and, of course, a challenging roof.It is located at the far right end of the Trapps, and the start is actually concealed by a massive boulder (Dick's Prick pinnacle) that sits at the base of the cliff. One must scramble down into a pit formed by the boulder and the main wall.Climb up a crack system and left-facing corner until you are situated beneath the roof.

I really don't understand why the climbs on the wall behind Dick's Prick are not listed in the "faves" or classics list and get descriptions. These are some short, but terrific routes.

Bone Hard 12a left side of the wall - great moves!

Death's Head Mask 12c - fun and hard

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun - 13a - yeah 13a for a 5'2" Lynn Hill.

Bone Hard can be easily TRed by going up the giant pillar block to the left to a ledge, then walk to it's far northern end, then step onto the main wall and traverse right 5.4 until you come to the anchors for Bone Hard.

Girls is easily TRed after leading 10,000 Restless Virgins.

Try it. That is one of the hardest cruxes I've ever attempted in the Gunks. I mean, I had gotten Bone Hard in 2 tries, had breezed through 10,000 on lead, and couldn't begin to make the crux move on Girls.

Hi Nick, nice to see you here. Those routes are not listed here simply because no one has added entries for them yet. When someone does create entries for them (hint!, hint!), they'll be voted on by others, and automatically added to the favorites and classics lists. Thanks for the photos you added today!
