Excellent route in a right-facing corner system, with two cruxes.


Start in a right-facing corner approx 50 feet right of First Day; the base of the cliff is somewhat open there. Follow corner system through two roofs to the top.


Adequate. Bolted anchor at top of cliff. Easy walkoff.

Pro is good. You can place solid cams under the roof and after pulling around the roof from a good if slightly awkward stance before scooting up. Jul 14, 2013
Fun easy climb...good pros. Found a copperhead on the left ledge right after pulling the roof. Jul 26, 2013

I'm not sure what the two cruxes are on this, unless you're counting the traverse and the roof as two separate cruxes.

Pro is good and falls are mostly clean (a rarity in the Gunks!). Dec 9, 2017
