Description

Some people find this route awkward, due to the mandatory wide stemming through the crux; I rather enjoy it. This route has a tendency to be damp, but in general is climbable all season.

Location

In the corner where the left and right walls meet, there is a blocky dihedral; climb straight up the dihedral. Easy walk-off.

Protection

Adequate. Gear/natural anchor at the top.

I thought this route was sustained at the grade, but had plenty of (large) gear. Sep 13, 2011

This route is really fun. Lots of stemming and mantleing make this a really heady fun climb. Just keep an eye out for all of the dirt and spiders on this route. Aug 12, 2012

This would be a good prep for someone wanting to try Double Chin in the Trapps. Both are neat 3D corner climbs, but this is easier.

I've done a bunch of other 5.5s in Peterskill and none of them were as memorable as this one, so I feel this is at least 3 stars for the area and grade. Jun 26, 2018
