Description

A truly demanding climb in the backwaters of the Adirondacks. Incredibly sustained and an undeniably aesthetic natural line. See also the new routes page for Adirondack Rock

Climb the obvious crack off a small ledge, as it narrows from hands to fingers. Make a switch right as the crack arcs left and continue up past a bolt to a hero finish.

A bit of history: this line may have been attempted in the 80s by a Clarkson University student, as Jon Bassett recalls an underclassmen in his hubris trying to climb a steep fingercrack next to the covered passages (there is no other feature matching this description to my recollection). The climber didn't get very far off the ground before falling and ripping all of his gear, but managed to escape unharmed. The crack sat dormant until it was finally scooped up in 2019, as local Adam Crofoot quietly continued his surge through the North Country.

Location

The steep left rising finger crack left of the open area under the winter route Hangover Remedy, just before the first covered passage.

Protection

Fairly standard rack
