Description Suggest change

What is described here is a linkup of La Spirale into pitch two of Thunderhead. This avoids an uncomfortable belay, incorporates the crux of p1 of Thunderhead, and makes for an excellent, long, and varied pitch. For a pitch one description of Thunderhead consult "Adirondack Rock".

Climb La Spirale to its end passing the shared p1 anchor with Thunderhead to a stance under the imposing roof (5.11-). Jam your way out the overhanging crack starting with fists, then hands with good gear and work your to a stance on the face above. Tiptoe your way to the Calamine Ledge. Walk climbers right to the Cirrhosis anchor and descend with two ropes.

Location Suggest change

The attractive arête right of Green Onion and left of Menace to Sobriety below two large roofs.

Protection Suggest change

7 bolts for La Spirale, gear to 4" including RPs for the finish. Nut tool for excavating placements up high.
