Description

Who says Peterskill is climbed out? A big move off the ground leads to more reasonable climbing, mostly near the arete. Ends with a gear anchor about where Crack-a-Lack tops out.

Location

Starts on the face right of C-a-L; 5 ft left of the arete to be precise. Go up 12' or so, step to R side of arete for a few moves, then back left to a big mantle near where the tree limb rests against the cliff. Finish easily up and left. An ALTERNATIVE START would be to start on the right side of the arete and join the route about 10-12 ft up. I'd call it a 5.5/6 line if you go this way.

Protection

A tad runout on the much easier rock of the last 20' but otherwise it's pure G rated. It just doesn't look that way from below! Small cam (e.g. #0 Metolius TCU) to #3 Camalot. Typical rack in other words. Brown Tricam esp. useful.

The first move is definitely the crux but there is more excitement above. Fun! Jun 10, 2016
Nice route. A strenuous, static crux move and then some engaging climbing to the top. Apr 16, 2013
