The clean corner of Mr. Rogers'. Photo by--Grah...


As the easiest route on the Web, Mr Rogers' climbs a very definite right-facing corner in the center of the cliff.

The route begins, as the climber steps from a large boulder onto the cliff. The following moves are, for many, the crux of the climb. Gain the top of the broken wall/roof and get yourself into the main corner above. after about 50 feet of airy, albeit mellow, climbing you reach the top of the pitch marked by slung chockstones on the crack above your head.


Center of the cliff, behind a couple large boulders. Look for the very clean right-facing corner.


A standard rack with doubles in the .75 and #1 range. Slung chockstones for the lower-off.

There are now two bolts at the top of the climb. At the top of the corner continue working climber's left on the ledge to the bolted anchor above Fear and Loathing in Keene Valley.

Fun climb surrounded by many much more awesome climbs. Be aware of a surprising amount of questionable blocks near the crux. A fun variation start is to chimney up at the beginning between the main wall and the "start boulder."

Pitch one of this route is very nice. Best to rap from the bolts. Pitch two is dirty and has lots of loose rock, plus a fallen tree at the top-out which could easily be pulled down.

getting out of the cave may be a touch awkward, but as far as 5.8's in the pass go, this is by far one of my top 3. The movement in the corner is a lot of fun, better climbing than Rockaholic if you ask me.
