The crux is the thin seam on the first pitch. This route climbs to the woods in three short pitches. The first pitch is a serious piece of climbing.

I think this was one of my first 5.11 in the Gunks back in the mid 70's.

Pitch 1: Layback up the thin seam with difficult gear, reach a good bucket about 25 feet up and belay on a obvious ledge.


Just right of Shockley's Ceiling.


Small to medium gear with many small rp's. I used crack-n-up's when I did the route. A pad could be helpful on the starting moves.

A hard route- good thing it's short. I wonder if the first pitch has been highballed ?
