DescriptionRecommended finish of the Diagonal and Bottle slides. Climbed it in September 2010, after getting off-route (intended to climb the Eagle Slide). Luckily we had a 30m rope, few slings and two large hexes. It is one pitch but I gave it a grade II, as it involves at least 2 hours of bushwacking followed by climbing a fairly steep and mossy slide.
LocationThe route is located on the steep vertical wall after you finish either Bottle or Diagonal Slides. I got on it from the Diagonal - from top of the slide, bushwack straight up till you come to a vertical wall. Walk approx. 15 feet till you see the obvious vertical crack in a right-facing corner. According to "Adirondack Book" the crack is located 150 feet right from the top of the Bottle slide.
Descent: Bushwack to the top till you get on the marked trail, turn right to the summit, from where you descent via Roaring Brook Trail back to your car.
