Description Suggest change

This line is stellar and independent of Three Vultures and Amber Waves of Pain. It is a very direct line as far as Gunks routes go.

Scramble off the GT ledge and run it out as high as you feel comfortable to avoid rope drag later on. Grovel your way up the wide crack to a stance under the roof. Crank over the roof onto spectacular rock and work out the hard 5.10 roof moves. Plug a few pieces and finesse your way on to the most excellent and exposed arete. Work your way back left into the final 5.9ish roof/corner and romp up to the top of the cliff!

Location Suggest change

From the GT ledge, Three Vultures Direct shares the same start as Amber Waves of Pain and Three Vultures -- they all start on top of a blocky pinnacle to the climber's right of Andrew.

Protection Suggest change

RPs and C3s are needed to sew this one up, as with most routes 5.10 and up at the Gunks.
