Description Suggest change

The second pitch is excellent, a slightly easier version of P2 of Positive Latitude with excellent knob and dimples! We did not climb P1 (the crux), so the description is verbatim from Adirondack Rock's new route page (which should be the primary resource for this route). Please contribute any information!

"P1: Up the staircase flake and over a shallow, right-facing, right-arching flake (5.9+). Above are three discontinuous, short, right-facing corners; work up to a stance at the top of the highest corner. Step right and climb a steep face (5.10), then cruise easy terrain to the fixed anchor of Positive Latitude."

P2: climb straight up from the belay, to a small overhang formed by a right facing flake. Past this (crux) following the bolts up tenuous, beautiful dimples to where the angle eases back. Angle up and left on easier, beautifully featured climbing, but run-out, to an overlap with a bolt. Over this, then up more run-out and easy, highly featured, terrain to a fixed anchor.

Location Suggest change

Left of Positive Latitude at a shallow, left -rising flake.

Protection Suggest change

Small to finger sized gear for the first pitch. Second pitch is bolted but a #2 Camalot helps for the start. Double ropes to rappel.
