|This little route is super cool. It's a true rarity in the Gunks - one of the only pure hand cracks that I can think of. It's only tight hands in a few spots. I have big hands and I managed to find nice jams. I even got a finger lock at one point. Totally classic!|

If you like to crack climb, this is the route to get on at the Gunks.
Toothy and pumpy, this climb is a true truly fun grueller.
After taking at the crux, I slid up left on the arrete for a few layback moves, then slid back into the crack after a bomber hand jam. Moving out onto the arrete probably is off, but it's no less difficult.
Doubles in .75 to #1 for the route and #2s for the anchor are helpful.
