Description

Also known as Beginner Corner, climb up the sloping ledges following a thin crack past the small, blocky right-facing comer to easier ground above. Not always the cleanest or most graceful route to play on. You may find it to be a bit wet after a good rain too.

This is a good climb for the new trad climber, with one issue, a fall on the first half could cause you to hit/land on the ledges.

Watched a two person team swap leads the whole way up this recently. they turned this from a simple single pitch to a whopping 4 pitches (they were working on building belay stations and swapping out leads). Thought this was a good idea and this is the climb to try it on.

Location

Starting 12 feet right of Beginner Flake.

Protection

Good Pro - Small to Med. gear. I tend to use nuts & small cams (C3's) lower down and C4's up to a #3 higher up. It is possible to place a #4 too. That is if you are dieing to use it and feel like lugging it up.
It's possible to sew this route up if you feel like it.

Lots of fun moves on great holds. One or two long strenuous reaches that make it way harder than 5.5 even though the holds are positive.

If this were the second pitch of some 5.7 route in the Gunks, it would be famous. May 22, 2015
