Protruding Forehead

5.10d, Trad, 60 ft (18 m),  Avg: 3.7 from 9 votes
FA: Ian Measeck, Craig Vollkommer
New York > Adirondacks > F: Lake George… > Shelving Rock > Neanderthal Cave
Access Issue: Peregrine Closures Details

Description

Climb up the flake and through the overhang to a steep, right-rising crack. When the crack runs out make a big move left to a parallel weakness in the rock, and climb to a stance. A few awkward moves through the roof above bring you to the chains.

If you want to TR this route the bolted anchors can be accessed by lowering off of Devo (5.8). A directional would be helpful at the beginning of the crack to prevent a swing into the trees.

Location

Around the corner (climber's right) from Devo and Diva

Protection

Gear to 1", bolted anchors

Follows the steep right angling crack. Doesn't climb like a crack and gear is hard to place and specific. I used two hand jams.

[Hide Comment] I found homes for a #2 and a #3 on this climb. Its a little run out after the steep climbing. You do get gear before the final move to the chains. Aug 9, 2020
