DescriptionEd Palen pointed me to this climb in 2002 with the promise of the glory of the 2nd ascent. He'd been climbing a lot that year, and really was climbing well.
He said, in all honesty " 5.7 maybe 5.7+ "
START- Look for a spike of rock 15-20 ft right of the "laser cut" layback corner of "Buffalo Bob".
P1 - Climb up past a piton gaining the thin crack above. Climb this (remember, your Beta said "5.7" ! Ha!) headed up into a corner with a ceiling. Below the corner/ceiling step left. (Ed forgot to mention this little fact, I tried the ceiling for a while, see Variation).
Join "Reach for the Sky" to its fixed anchor.
Adirondack Rock lists a variation: Climb through the ceiling via the left crack, 5.10d
