If you summit The Pear and rap down the usual anchors, check out this route. It's in the corridor across from the rap station and is a neat, little, finger crack that would be a great end to a good day of climbing. The crack is obvious and the first few moves to good gear offer the crux. To TR, bring some long slings to wrap around a big block.


Set of stoppers and small cams, mabye one hand-sized.

On Oct. 8, 1977, I led Tim Loften up this climb. We'd climbed Right Dihedral and summited the Pear, then rapped into the corridor. The other side of the corridor looked interesting, so, before leading it, I third-classed partway up, to check it out. (See the photo on p. 43, Rock & Ice #9, July/Aug, 1985.) I remember big holds on vertical face — unusual for Lumpy. Nov 1, 2014

George, thanks for the history. Did you name it? Nov 6, 2014
Hi Leo — we were just climbing and didn't name it. The current name is OK, although I think it resembles the Gunks more than Devil's Lake. Let's get out sometime! Dec 23, 2014
