Dirty, thuggish, short, atypical for the Gunks, fun and worth doing.

Can be protected easily with a single rack and nothing larger than a #3 without runout. Just have know see where to place the gear. Fun climb, physical. May 1, 2018

Not nearly enough traffic for a gunks crack! Get on this! I'd agree with Ben that while the most obvious placements are bigger cams there are features that will take other sizes. single to #4 would definitely suffice to get you up to the rap tree, but I wasn't mad bumping a #6 above me in the roof and essentially being on TR. Don't skip this climb just because you don't have big gear though! I'll have to back up my claim one day :) May 29, 2018
