Description Suggest change

A fully-sustained fingercrack in a dihedral, that starts off just barely slab and ends up just barely overhanging. Look for small but reliable footholds scattered around the right face.

Widely regarded as one of the best 5.9s you'll ever climb as well as one of the finest climbs at Peterskill or indeed all of the Gunks. Also, the climb on the cover of the Peterskill guide.

Location Suggest change

Climb the fingercrack in the obvious left-facing dihedral on the right end of the Golden Wall alcove. Easy to walk off.

Protection Suggest change

G-rated - it's a sustained fingercrack. There is a double-bolted anchor at the top.
