Description

An excellent pitch that is atypical for the Gunks - more subtle and balancy than usual.

Look for a right-slanting crack system that starts about 55' left of The Spring (P1).

P1: Climb up and right, then left through a small overhang, up the crack, and finish with a funky rightward traverse to a fixed anchor that deposits you over The Winter (or continue to the bolted anchor on the huge ledge up and right) 5.8, 80'.

P2: If you keep going, work back left and skirt the roof above on the left. Then climb somewhat vegetated rock to the GT Ledge. 5.6, 100'.

Location

The Bold-Ville access trail is about a 19-min. walk from the Uberfall, and a 15-min. walk from where the East Trapps Connector Trail meets the carriage road. This is just past a boulder with bouldering routes on it. Bold-Ville starts about 55' left of The Spring, a left-facing corner with a spring at its base. Bold-Ville is about 170' right of Double Crack.
