Description

Up the middle of the face of the Herdie Gerdie block. Thin face moves between horizontals, with a line of fixed pins to point the way. Tree rap station/anchor on top can be backed up with gear. This is very fun climb despite being short. There is an 11a variation to the right, Nurdie Gerdie (aka Dogs in Heat), that is seldom led and often toproped. Both are quality routes.

Location

Just before the Uberfall, in the center of a huge block that's 20' off the carriage road, and just before Bunny.

Protection

Bring a few screamers if yer fat like me; those old fixed pins don't look so hot. Real small cams are helpful to back up the pins. Otherwise a few small-to-medium cams is all ya need to fill the remaining horizontals.

I took a whip on this today. I backed up the top pin with a green alien and took an inadvertant 12 footer. All air. I thought I was through the crux when I came upon some slopey holds with not so great feet. Oops...off I skittered. It's a tad run out after the crux, you can get some crappy gear off to the right, but, I sure wouldn't want to fall on it. Aug 20, 2011

Oh, yeah, I remember those holds and the runout well. This route deserves more stars. And maybe a PG rating, hard to say for sure.
8+, hmmm, only at The Gunks! Aug 21, 2011

I agree it needs more stars. This is a super fun route for a 5.8+, given that it's not a one-crux-move route as are many at the Gunks. Jun 5, 2016

fun route, though definitely the hardest 8+ I've ever led (maybe I made all the wrong moves). The pins seemed very solid except the last one Jun 26, 2018
