Description

Extremely continuous and demanding climbing up an orange, overhanging corner. The first completely trad 5.13 in the Adirondacks. A classic if you can climb at this grade. Though I have neither the skills nor the cojones to climb this route, it appears nearly featureless above the small ledge 15' from the start. It is one of those routes that gains its high grade not from steepness, but from the fact that it is climbed almost entirely by slapping and smearing on an overhanging corner. A real test.

Location

Start from the ledge below Bon Chance.

Protection

RPs, small TCUs.
