Very sustained climb. There's arguably several 5.9 moves, but the crux is getting to the bolt. Can get a couple small nuts before the bolt. This is considered by most to be the best climb at Lost T.

Perhaps a moderate 5.9 for the ADK's, and especially when compared to Mystery Achievement across the road. But who cares - its still very worth doing. Beautiful pitch!!!!

Stick-clip that first bolt: the hardest move is getting to it.
If this route had a view, it would be among the top 3 single pitch routes in NYS. The moves are lithified ecstacy.

Don Redmond (230 lb of muscle) broke off part of the starting hold in June 2016. Fortunately the start difficultly has not changed much; getting to that first bolt is a challenge for the 5.9 leader
