Description

The appealing line at the cliff. A 20 foots roof crack. I read that this might be the longest free horizontal roof crack route in the Adirondack Park.

Pitch 1: Start on bolts making your way up the bulge to the slab to a big boulder. This boulder is solid and provide good gear before heading to the roof. Head for the roof traversing and underclinging left with increasing difficulty. The crux is at the lip like many other roof crack. Reach an anchor right after the lip. 60'

Location

This climb is located at The Crown area in a section called The Amphitheater. To reach The Amphitheater follow the cliff line to the left for about 2-3 mins until you reach the prominent amphitheater where you'll see the roof.

The climb start to the left of the bolts line.

Protection

to Camalot #2. Add a directional to avoid rope drag

Interesting comparison.

Entertainment is longer and perhaps more sustained. I find the finish of Fountainhead harder than anything on Entertainment. There is a pucker factor on Entertainment, and Fountainhead has good gear the whole way. Oct 10, 2017
