Bloody Mary is yet-another high quality moderate at the Gunks. This vertical Trad climb is located next to Drunkard.
P1: Start at the left edge of the block. Follow the vertical crack until a small overhang at ~40'. Traverse right, to the next vertical crack, and climb that to the set of trees above it. 5.6G
P2: Traverse left from the tree belay ~30' on easy ground, climb up to the first set of overhangs, then traverse back right to clear the main overhang at a weakness. Continue to the GT ledge. This pitch is not for the faint of heart, or the faint of followers!
as of 8/2016: There is a very scary looking fallen tree hanging over the edge of the GT Ledge almost directly on top of pitch 2. Balanced on top of the fallen tree is a large boulder. Please be very careful walking over the tree to the rap rings (climbers right).
P3: Climb the first right-facing corner on the left, ~10 feet high. Step left, and continue up to the top, passing a bulge. Variation: Climb the right-facing corner on that's 20 feet right, continue to the top.
Walk off via Uberfall Descent.
