Description

1. Climb to the bottom of an obvious crack, go right a bit and then wander up to the big ledge on Three Pines. 5.7, 100 feet.

2. Start 15-20 feet right of the Three Pines corner. Climb straight up the face to the overhang. After the overhang, straight up again to the large ledge. 5.9 X, 60 feet.

3. I haven't done the third pitch, but those that have told me it is nice climbing and well protected.

The description in the latest gray 'Gunks guidebook is not correct.

Location

Start approximately halfway between Three Pines and Something Interesting; there are no distinct landmarks.

Protection

Standard 'Gunks rack.

I was never able to lead P2 despite trying several times. I'd get half way up or so and then angle one way or the other (don't remember) to live another day. P1 is fun, steep and juggy, with some gear, and worth doing on its own. Mar 9, 2011

Geez Dana sounds damn exciting! I'm assuming you are planning to go back, assuming you are all healed up now, and get the third pitch done! I am nominating Ed as your second. I assume he, of course, will do it old school style and take it off the hip!

Yikes!

For those of us with shorter necks, this can be toproped easily from the rappel bolts, but beware that you'll be toproping the rappel line (for that matter, you should beware if you lead it, as well). Mar 8, 2011
