Description

Climb a ramp up and right to the right side of an overhang (follow the fixed pins, still there as of 2007), then move right up the face using the path of least resistance to a large ledge and tree. Descend right, via the Uberfall Descent.

The face is often sandy and not nearly as good as it looks.

Location

Fifty feet right of Rhododendron, at a pool known as the frog pond. Just left of an obvious slabby face with a seam diagonaling right.

Protection

Fixed pins (?) + standard Gunks rack. A top-rope anchor can be built with static line off of trees 30' back from the top.

Good route to mess around on while you wait for Horseman to open up. Short. Small holds. High feet. Nothing to write home about. Sep 19, 2010

Easy to back up the pins with 0 and 00 Mastercams if you want. Nice warm up, just wish it was longer! Jul 31, 2012

Looking at the Topos in the Gunks App, the climb goes up pretty far, but beyond the first bit, most of this is just steep hiking. The crux moves are kind of neat in an awkward way, but I wouldn't go out of my way to get on this. May 5, 2018

There are three ancient but solid-feeling pitons along the route. Fun, short, and really tricky for a 5.4, even at the Gunks! Jun 24, 2018
