Along the Cliff

last area: Slime Wall

Description

Main Features: Sleepy Hollow has more of a lost-in-the-woods (read: solitude!) feel, as the cliff is generally shorter and lower here. It's more a collection of individual routes, than an wall or a coherent area. Still, there are some truly worthwhile routes to discover hidden behind the vegetation!

Approach: Generally, these routes are approached by either the very last before the S-turn in the carriage road, which takes you up to Almost Pure & Simple, or by walking into the woods at the first apex of the S-turn. See individual route descriptions.

Descent: Varies by route; typically tree anchors.

Hi Nick, nice to see you here. Those routes are not listed here simply because no one has added entries for them yet. When someone does create entries for them (hint!, hint!), they'll be voted on by others, and automatically added to the favorites and classics lists. Thanks for the photos you added today!

I really don't understand why the climbs on the wall behind Dick's Prick are not listed in the "faves" or classics list and get descriptions. These are some short, but terrific routes.

Bone Hard 12a left side of the wall - great moves!

Death's Head Mask 12c - fun and hard

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun - 13a - yeah 13a for a 5'2" Lynn Hill.

Bone Hard can be easily TRed by going up the giant pillar block to the left to a ledge, then walk to it's far northern end, then step onto the main wall and traverse right 5.4 until you come to the anchors for Bone Hard.

Girls is easily TRed after leading 10,000 Restless Virgins.

Try it. That is one of the hardest cruxes I've ever attempted in the Gunks. I mean, I had gotten Bone Hard in 2 tries, had breezed through 10,000 on lead, and couldn't begin to make the crux move on Girls. Oct 8, 2015
