Description

I've only climbed pitch one. It has very good climbing in a long pitch (170'). Consult Adirondack Rock online for a description of the upper pitches.

Start below the right end of a left rising crack. Climb up and right to a stance and a bolt. Friction right past another bolt and up to the 3rd class ledge. Head straight up the steep headwall (crux) for a few clips and then traverse right to a right facing flake. Head up the flake on less steep terrain and belay at a tree.

Double rope rap to the ground from the Groovitational Pull anchors located 25 feet to the left.

Location

To the right of a large boulder pile is a clean slab. The slab and the steep upper wall are split by a left rising 3rd class ramp.

Protection

Draws and slings for pitch one.

The 3rd bolt hanger on P1 has been flattened a bit this winter-can't clip a biner, but a thin dyneema type sling can be threaded. The bolt itself is fine, must have been ice, not rockfall.
P1 is more like 130' max, not 170'.
The tree at the top of P1 is getting to be garbage. If you want to rap, traverse easily L to the bolt anchors on Gravitational Pull. Apr 16, 2017

Very nice P1-delicate slab beginning to good edges above the ledge. A single 70m rap from the tree at the top of P1 will get down with a little easy scrambling. Oct 1, 2016

The second pitch is the left facing corner just left of the oak tree belay. Exit the corner moving right when at a cedar in the crack. 40' 5.6. The third pitch is longer and follows bolts up a sustained pocketed face until under a corner with many horizontals. Here you step right into a cave and then back left into the corner on jugs. The short corner leads directly to the flat summit. roughly 130' 5.8. Pitch 2 and 3 are easily linked. Bring a single rack #.3-#3. Pitch 2 needs a couple pieces as does pitch 3 (to remain G rated). Also, there is no fixed anchors at the top, save the number three and a couple smaller cams for this. Good climbing the whole way.

Oh yah....to get down walk climber left and scramble down to the anchors of Brazilian. Make 2 double rope raps. Jun 22, 2014
