Four Guns Blazing

5.11d, Sport, 50 ft (15 m),  Avg: 2.6 from 10 votes
FA: Patrick Purcell and Chris Hyson, 8/92
New York > Adirondacks > B: Chapel Pond… > King Wall

Description

Powerful, thin facing climbing that packs a stunning punch in just 50 feet of climbing.

Start about 15 feet right of Kingdom Come on the right side of the ledge, just left of the black streak. Hard moves off the deck lead to good horizontal jug.  Leaving the jug you enter sustained and painful edging with strenuous clipping stances up to a fixed anchor to the right of the final bolt.  This route has been updated some what recently.

[Hide Comment] Clipping hold at the 4th bolt (or 5th, I forget) is super thin and hollow. Felt it flex. I wouldn't want to be pulling up rope to clip when it finally pops. Sep 4, 2021
