Description Suggest change

Nurse's Aid in a nice climb that launches up the wall just left of Feast of Fools. The face below the roof is challenging -- there is a scary section in an orange plaque of rock that is very difficult to protect. From here, step left and continue up and through the massive roof. Considering Gunks grades, I found this roof to be quite reasonable at 5.10c. The pitch stops at the GT Ledge.

The second pitch continues up a left-facing overhanging corner system, but loose rock and lackluster climbing detract from its quality.

Protection Suggest change

Standard Rack.
