Featured Route For South Colton

Where Frenchman Dare 5.5 4b 13 IV+ 11 MS 4a  NY : Adirondacks : ... : South Colton
A short climb with a short but decent corner with a crack which has some hands. A crack which runs up to the left up the steeper wall has some great hands in it but if it rained recently this variation is unclimbable with some sort of super slippery goop. The climb could use cleaning, the face has quite a bit of lichen and such.Scramble up the lower blocks to a big ledge, then up the corner to a fixed anchor. You might find a stem handy for a move or two....[more]   Browse More Classics in NY
