Description

This delicate slab climb doesn't require much strength, but instead asks for and rewards precise footwork. The crux comes 2/3rds of the way up pitches 1, past bolt 6.

Master this climb and you'll be ready for inscrutable slabs anywhere. Yosemite and NH await.

While technically 2 pitches in length, the second pitch is so short that it is a bit unsatisfying.

Given how this may be many Philadelphia area climbers first multipitch, you should know that the belays are not at good ledges (semi-hanging belay at both anchors), and you should know the fundamentals of multipitch rope management and anchoring.

Enjoyable in late fall, winter and early spring. Probably to hot in summer.

Location

Route farthest right when facing the wall.

Protection

11 draws to the first anchor.

Wear helmets! lots of loose stuff that comes off the top.

Can be just barely rapped from the top anchors with a 70 M rope. Otherwise 2 raps will be required.
