This is an amazing two pitch climb just to the right of Kaaterskill Falls. For the first pitch climb, the steep pillar just right of the main falls then traverse left to a tree to belay. For the second pitch, traverse left a bit more then climb the other steep pillar up to the roof. Make a couple moves right out of the roof, then climb the wide crack in the corner to the top.


Take the trail up to Kaaterskill Falls and climb the lower falls. This will put you in the giant amphitheater with the main falls in front of you and the first pitch pillar just to the right of it.


Screws, including at least one stubby. For rock gear, at least a C4 #4 and #5. You might want to double up on one or both of them too.
