[Hide Comment] The Peterskill guidebook photo is wrong for this route. The image here shows the correct line. Apr 3, 2011
[Hide Comment] The left line (variation) at the top is getting very little traffic and was almost covered with moss and lichen (unclimbably so) in Aug. 2016 Aug 20, 2016

[Hide Comment] both lines on this rout are suitably clear of moss and lichen to climb as of 8/2019 Aug 8, 2019
