Climb to bolt (crux) then up crack to the bolted anchor.


Middle of the cliff, below a bolt 15 feet up and a long crack that goes to the top.


Bolt, standard rack (small cams useful)

Very sustained climb. There's arguably several 5.9 moves, but the crux is getting to the bolt. Can get a couple small nuts before the bolt. This is considered by most to be the best climb at Lost T. Apr 18, 2012

Perhaps a moderate 5.9 for the ADK's, and especially when compared to Mystery Achievement across the road. But who cares - its still very worth doing. Beautiful pitch!!!! Apr 20, 2012

Stick-clip that first bolt: the hardest move is getting to it.
If this route had a view, it would be among the top 3 single pitch routes in NYS. The moves are lithified ecstacy. Apr 20, 2012
Don Redmond (230 lb of muscle) broke off part of the starting hold in June 2016. Fortunately the start difficultly has not changed much; getting to that first bolt is a challenge for the 5.9 leader Jul 17, 2016

Very beautiful line, the climbing is fluid. The jams are superb. This pitch would be right at home at the base of the Grand Wall in Squamish. But, as in other routes, I struggled to understand why there was a bolt so far off the ground that it was rendered useless. You have to climb through the boulder crux to clip it. There is adequate protection below if you are a competent 5.9 leader. By the time you get to the bolt it is basically useless. Oct 16, 2016

The moves off the ground are not trivial - maybe they are a bit greasy from traffic - but are totally safe to do sans stick clip with a well-placed, excellent RP Aug 10, 2018
