The Voids are two 5.11s on the front side of the Void block. Void Where Inhibited, also known as the Right Void, clears the well-protected roof at the weakness / left-facing corner on the right, then meanders up the face at somewhat-heady 5.9 to the common tree rappel.


Almost at the end of the Nears, you'll find a large block leaning against the cliff, with a prominent ceiling at about 10'.


Std. Gunks rack.


I think ithat it would be 5.11b if higher. But 15 feet off the gound, with G protection, it is easier. Or not? Aug 6, 2009
A good first 5.11 Oct 3, 2009

felt more like V3 than 11a Jul 18, 2011
It's one of those routes where the holds aren't obvious, but once you know them its not that hard. You can jam it, but I've found that using the crimp to be a good bit easier. Jul 18, 2011

Solid 11b for me; felt harder than most 11a's I've done at the Gunks but maybe its a style thing. Many easier 11's around than this one ;) May 7, 2012

I thought the route was fairly straightforward. Considering that before the crux there is really good protection and that the crux is near the ground, getting a send on this is not that difficult. I used the small crimp on the right and after hitting that, it was game over. Feb 29, 2016

Never found the crimp, but was able to layback through the moves, and you get a nice no hands rest after the crux. Several brass offsets and a few small cams make the upper slab protect really well. Definitely G rated up top with small gear. Anchor was new looking static around a tree with stainless carabiners. Sep 10, 2018
