Description

Pebbles is one of the few routes in the Gunks to work on your "slab" climbing skills. Although the namesake of the bouldering area, Pebbles is decidedly listed with the routes as it is a much better idea to use a rope on this one... You could "boulder" the route but it is pretty high ball. The Williams guide calls this the Chockstone Boulder, but I've always just called it Pebbles. Start on the south face just off of the carriage road and move right to the arete. Avoiding the arete is a fun variation, but a little harder. I TR'd this at least once a year in my youth. Testing my balance and often my father's patience...

Location

Right off the carriage road below the route Jackie. This is the right edge of the tall south facing slab.

Protection

Probably best done as a top rope (gear anchor).

An easy top rope set up (with gear). Fun climb. There are two other variations up the rock. Far left is 10+, middle is pretty hard, moving to the arĂȘte is 7ish.

Fun climb, good to work the feet. It's low angle, with few positive feet/hands.

worth doing when you are wanting to practice precise footwork. Jun 9, 2014

I climbed up the South face on the right side and once atop the nice rail about seven feet up came around the arete to the right and then climbed the face pretty much straight up with a slight angle to the right to follow the diagonal crack. At the time I thought this was the Dick Williams description for Pebbles, but now I'm not so sure.

Any thoughts on this? Apr 17, 2017
